A sworn statement in proof of loss

If you are filing a claim with your insurance company, you may be asked to fill out a sworn statement in proof of loss. This document is intended to reduce insurance fraud. The statement in proof of loss forms may vary, depending on your insurance company and policy, but generally, you will be asked to make a sworn statement affirming that your items and property were destroyed and should be covered by your insurance policy. In other words, you are providing your insurance company a sworn statement saying that your fire damage is real, and your claim is honest. The sworn statement you make is usually one form and easy to make.

The sworn statement in proof of loss usually needs to be submitted within 60 days from the date the insurance company request it. Failure to do so could result in the denial of your claim. Completing a comprehensive proof of loss is vital to the claims process and the policyholder's recovery, and if not done properly could result in delay, underpayment, or a full-out denial of your claim.

Some of the information you will be asked to provide in this statement is,

  1. Date and cause of the loss
  2. Policy number
  3. Parties claiming the loss under the policy
  4. Parties having an interest in the property such as the bank that is holding the mortgage
  5. Coverage amounts at the time of loss
  6. Proof of ownership

The insurance adjuster is not allowed to help you with the proof of loss document, as the insurance company wants all the information to come from you. This document has to be 'sworn' in the presence of a notary, and by signing it you agree that all the information you have given is true and honest, to the best of your knowledge.

As a side note, a public adjuster can help you prepare, estimate and settle your insurance claim, and in most states, is allowed to help you with details in filling out your sworn proof of loss statement.
