If your State Farm claim involves damage to your vehicle and you are making loan payments on it, contact your lender, and find out the lender's procedure for handling claims payments, explains State Farm. Use State Farm's Auto Damage Service Programs to obtain additional assistance for finding a repair facility and obtaining estimates.

When your claim involves damage to your home or property due to fire, hurricane or other catastrophe, assess the damage to see if there are dangerous conditions that you need to address, recommends State Farm. You may need engineering or contractor inspections and repairs that are not reimbursable immediately, or your policy may not cover them without a specific endorsement. Review your policy and if you have questions, ask your agent. Obtain repair estimates and keep track of all of the money you spend. If you have a mortgage on your home, contact the mortgage company, and inquire about its claims payment procedures.
