Searching for Claims or Claimants (General)

There are a lot of reasons why you would want to search for a claim or claimant aside from matching. For example, to view a list of all open claimants assigned to an adjuster, to view a list of claims for a particular individual, or to update the name or address of a claimant. Searching for a claimant will also allow you to view their Claimant Financial Summary, which provides a summary of the amounts proposed and approved for the claimant.

To search for a claim:

The search results list for claims and claimants are numbered and can be sorted by clicking on the column headings. As always, the more specific you can be when entering your search criteria, the more specific your search results will be.
