JACKSON, Ms.WJTVCommissioner of Insurance Mike Chaney encouraged Mississippians to prepare for the upcoming 2021 Atlantic hurricane season with a new home inventory app.

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) launched the new Home Inventory app earlier this year. The app offers the possibility to:

  • Group assets by category
  • Scan barcodes for accuracy
  • Easily upload and export photos
  • Find disaster preparedness advice
  • View information about filing insurance claims

The app is accessible through the App Store and Google Play.

“There are other insurance-related things you can do to protect yourself in the event of a storm,” said Commissioner Chaney. “Don’t forget to review your insurance coverage and make sure you are familiar with your policies. If you have any questions, please contact your insurance agent or insurer.”

Flood damage is generally not covered by standard homeowners or renters insurance. If you do not have flood insurance and are considering getting a policy there is a 30 day waiting period if you buy through the National Water Insurance Program (NFIP).

If you need assistance with an insurance question or claim, please call 601-359-3569, email [email protected] or visit www.mid.ms.gov
