At Nationwide our goal is to provide you with protection and peace of mind for your coverage needs today and in the years to come.

Nationwide's Relationship With Its Customers

Nationwide is on your side through the expected and unexpected. Throughout the company’s growth in the last 85 years, we’ve stayed true to our humble beginnings by focusing on you, the customer, and your financial needs at home and in your business. Our services go beyond insurance and we offer products to help you and your family meet all of your financial needs and goals across key areas including:

Nationwide Claim Handling

We try to make the claim filing and processing experience as seamless and user friendly as possible. Starting the claims process is as simple as logging into your account and beginning the process online, or calling our toll free number to speak to an agent who will walk you through the process from start to finish. Every claim is different, and some are more complex than others, but our claim handling process is designed to make it as easy as possible for you to file your claim right away, which is essential to expediting and paid as quickly as possible.

To get started, simply give us a call or file your claim online. Depending on the nature of the damage and type of claim, some cases can be settled over the phone. When you file, you will be assigned a Nationwide claims associate, who will help you gather all of the pertinent documents and information and help you set up an assessment of property damage if necessary.

If you need help finding a trusted and reliable contractor for repairs, our On Your Side Property Repair Network® is available to help you find the perfect contractor for your needs. Our agents can also make suggestions on steps you can take to protect your property from additional damage, and provide a checklist of everything you will need to do to ensure that your claim is processed and approved as quickly as possible.
