Claims

At Farmers Mutual Insurance Company of Nebraska, we understand that when you purchase insurance you are relying on us to be there when you need us most. It is our goal to provide prompt, fair, quality claims service on each claim reported.

We want to make it convenient to report a claim. We strongly encourage you to report any claim to your Farmers Mutual agent. Your independent agent knows your insurance needs better than anyone and can be of service with helping you in the claims process. Your agent will immediately set your claim in motion by notifying Farmers Mutual, on your behalf. However, if you prefer, you can also report your claim online.

If you are unable to reach your agent, after normal business hours, we provide an Emergency Phone Service. This service is available by calling toll free 1-800-742-7433 and following the prompts for reporting a claim that requires immediate attention.

When you report a claim, you will need your policy number, file number, personal contact information, brief overview of the type of damage that occurred, location of the damaged items, and the date of loss. Your policy information can be found on the “Declarations Page” of your policy.

If we already have a claim set up, and you need to get in touch with your adjuster, you can leave a voicemail message by calling toll free 1-800-742-7433, or you can send an email message. Your adjuster will attempt to contact you within one business day after receiving your voicemail message or email.

WHAT TO DO IN CASE OF A LOSS:


Auto Losses
  • Contact the local authorities and remain at the scene.
  • Obtain information from all parties involved. Include names, addresses, phone numbers, and insurance carrier with policy number. Obtain any witness information if available.
  • Do not make any admissions of fault or sign any written statements or releases until you have consulted with your Farmers Mutual Claims Representative.
  • Take reasonable steps to protect your vehicle from further damage.
  • Report your claim immediately to your agent or Farmers Mutual.

Property Losses
  • Take reasonable steps to prevent further damage. Keep all receipts of expenses incurred for temporary repairs.
  • If possible, secure photographs of the damage before any temporary repairs are made.
  • If the loss is caused by theft, notify the authorities.
  • If the loss involves a credit card or bank transfer card, notify the credit card company or bank immediately.
  • Separate items that may be cleaned or repaired. Do not discard any items you plan to claim as damaged without consulting with your Farmers Mutual Claims Representative.
  • Report your claim immediately to your agent or Farmers Mutual.

Automobile Glass Losses

For claims involving automobile glass only, you may dial 800-806-2576 to report the claim to LYNX Services. LYNX Services administers Farmers Mutual’s auto glass claims. A LYNX representative will ask for your policy number, the make and model of your vehicle, the last six digits of the vehicle’s identification number, the date of loss, and the cause of loss. Upon confirmation of coverage, LYNX will put you in contact with the repair facility of your choice.

There are certain glass claims that should NOT be reported to LYNX Services, but should be reported directly to your agent:

  • Glass damage associated with any other damage to the vehicle.
  • Glass damaged by hail.
  • Glass damaged by vandalism.
  • Glass damage that you have already paid for.

If you prefer to contact your agent directly to report a glass claim, you may do so and they will make the call to LYNX Services, or assist you in doing so.
