How Does the Claims Process Work?

CWG works with you throughout the entire claims process. Once a claim is reported, you will quickly hear from an assigned claim representative. We'll do our best to explain the process and to assist you in resolving the claim. When a claim is reported, we’ll contact you and ask some initial questions about your claim. We recommend that you have your policy number ready when you report your claim and write down your claim number when you receive it - doing so will help the entire process move more quickly and easily for you.
