STEP 1CHECK YOUR POLICY

While most phone insurance carriers allow for cancellations, there are many variations and stipulations that can come into play. If you don’t know the details of your policy, you won’t know the specifics of what you can and can’t do. For instance, if you have a family phone insurance policy some providers will only allow you to claim twice within a period of 12 months. We recommend checking your policy specifically for time limits on canceling a claim, as that is the most common stipulation. Most providers will allow you to cancel your claim within a few days of filing, so make sure you call to cancel as soon as you find your phone.

STEP 2GET YOUR CLAIM CONFIRMATION NUMBER HANDY

After you initially filed your claim, you should have received a claim ID or confirmation number from the provider. Get that number handy, as you will need it when you reach a customer service representative. If you don’t have the number written down, check your email inbox to see if it was emailed to you. Many providers can also find your claim using your mobile phone number and name.

STEP 3CONTACT THE INSURANCE PROVIDER

Once you’ve confirmed your claim can be canceled and you have your confirmation number on hand, you’ll need to call your insurance provider’s customer service phone number. Most providers require you to call and do not have an online cancellation option. As always, explain what happened in clear and simple terms. This can happen to anyone, and they should be understanding. Once the claim has been canceled, you should get a timeframe from the representative on when your money will be refunded. And if you feel the policy doesn’t favor you, information on how to cancel your phone insurance policy will be of great help.
