How soon after buying a plan can I file a claim?

The plan will go into effect the day after purchase at 12:01 a.m. Any loss that occurs before that time will not be covered under the plan. If you are unsure of your effective date, you may still go through the claims process to determine if you are eligible for benefits.

How much time do I have to submit a claim?

Claims need to be submitted within one year after a covered loss, but should be submitted as soon as possible.
