In-Person Contact Procedures

Whenever possible, Citizens is using technology to minimize policyholder contact. When Citizens employees or service providers need to make in-person contact, we have established procedures to minimize contact and protect everyone involved.

Citizens employees and service providers have been reminded to practice recognized health precautions, including frequent handwashing and physical distancing. They have been asked to stay home if they feel ill or have had any contact with someone who may have been exposed.

Citizens employees and service providers have been advised to work efficiently to minimize time spent in your home. You have the option of waiting outside your home while service is performed. In some cases, inspections and other services can be deferred. If necessary, we will reschedule an appointment with you for a later time. Additional inspection options are available for policyholders with hurricane claims.

You remain responsible for the duties under your policy, such as retaining damaged property for our inspection, taking pictures of damages, etc. Failure to do so could result in a denial of your claim.



Stay Safe
