Hi Deborah,

Your insurance policy will typically not have any specific timeframe for supplying claims. However, the policy will require your cooperation with the carrier’s investigations. This is a subjective standard but usually as long as you are maintaining communication with the carrier to help them understand your progress, that will be enough to assuage their concerns and should buy you some more time.

In South Carolina, whether your potential case involves damage to real property (your house or your land, for example) or personal property, you will typically have three years under the policy to resolve your claims or file suit. So keep this in mind if the claim is still under dispute and you are approaching three years from the date of loss.

Lastly, there are companies that specialize in preparing contents claims that can assist you or you can contact a professional public adjuster. Depending on the magnitude or complexity of the loss, those services can provide a lot of value. United Policyholders has a directory that you can search

Hope this is helpful.
