From the Insurance Commissioner's Office- 

Atlanta – Insurance Commissioner Ralph T. Hudgens estimates insured losses across the state from Monday's severe weather has now reached an estimated $50 million. 

Commissioner Hudgens would like to remind Georgians to inventory their belongings in case of a disaster.  For iPhone users this task can now be handled through an App called Scr.APP.bk provided by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. 

This App will allow iPhone users to take pictures of their items, scan barcodes, add purchase price and date, and even provides great tips regarding disaster preparation and insurance. 

By going to the Department of Insurance website (www.oci.ga.gov) and following the simple instructions on how to download the App, Georgians will have a catalog of their belongings. Also on the website, iPhone users can watch a demo video.

Hudgens reminds Georgians that they can call his Consumer Services Division at 404-656-2070, outside the Metro area at 1-800-656-2298, if they have questions about a claim or if they are experiencing difficulty reaching their insurance company.  Phone lines are open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.
