Claims Management & Restoration

At the in-home consultation, we execute an instrument called an Assignment of Benefits and Contract for Service.

Once the restoration of your home is complete, we bill the insurance company directly. No dealing with crazy adjusters who try to shortchange you on bring your home back to normal. The only thing we ever collect from you is your deductible.

what is an assignment of benefits

This is the most common question we get asked during the Cat Loss process. What is an Assignment of Benefits Contract?

Believe it or not, chances are, you have used one many times in your life. When you go to the doctor, you sign an assignment of benefits agreement, giving your healthcare provider the ability to file a claim to your  health insurance on your behalf, negotiate payments and ultimately get paid directly from your insurance company.

When a property owner files an insurance claim to cover a restoration or roofing project, the owner typically deals directly with the insurance company. They may not have the funds available to pay the contractor out of pocket, so they’re counting on that insurance check to cover the construction costs. This process can be extremely stressful and costly, and if you say the wrong thing. Its much like your Miranda Rights, whatever you say Can & Will Be Used Against You In A Court Of Law. There are many thing that homeowners can say that can get certain parts of a claim denied simply because it was stated incorrectly.

An assignment of benefits, or AOB, is an agreement to transfer insurance claim rights to a third party. It gives the assignee authority to file and negotiate a claim directly with the insurance company, without the need to involve the property owner. 

An AOB also allows the insurer to pay the contractor directly instead of funneling funds through the customer.

Here’s an example: A property owner’s roof is damaged in a hurricane. The owner contacts a restoration company to repair the damage, and signs an AOB to transfer their insurance rights to the contractor. The contractor, now the assignee, negotiates the claim directly with the insurance company. The insurer will pay the claim by issuing a check for the repairs directly to the restoration contractor. 

Pitt Brothers uses AOB’s for all insurance restoration related projects. It helps us speed up the process of filing the claim, restoring your home and to ensure all of the work needed to repair the damages are covered in the claim.
