How do you want to learn about homeowners insurance?
These are the general steps we take for property insurance claims. Your individual situation may differ.
Step 1. Contact your insurance company if you have any property damage
Your first step is to contact your insurance company and file a claim with them. Find out when an adjustor will come and when to expect any claim checks.
Step 2. Call us at 1-888-818-9147 after you file a claim
We’ll provide you important details on how to process your claim check. We’ll discuss how Wells Fargo will be involved in the process to restore your home. We’ll look for other ways we can help, like offering flexible loan payment options.
Step 3. Endorse the insurance check and start the repair process
When you receive your insurance check, you’ll notice that Wells Fargo is named on it. As the mortgage provider, we have a financial interest in ensuring your property is restored. Notify us as soon as you get your check, or visit our insurance claim check websites. We will give you the information and forms you need to move forward with repairs.

For most minor damages, we’ll endorse the insurance check to you to manage the repairs
Generally, if your home has only minor damages – and your loan is current – we won’t need to oversee the repair process. Instead, we’ll endorse the check completely to you to manage repairs. (Other conditions may apply.)
