Proof of Loss

A formal statement that you, the insured, send to your insurance provider in the event of a loss.

The exact "look" of this document may vary, depending on your insurer's requirements and government regulations, but its purpose is the same: to provide detailed evidence of the damage and your loss.

Normally, you must include descriptions of the damaged property and its value. This is an extremely important document, as it helps determine the total value of the claim.
