How do I get a refund for a Delta flight I missed due to personal emergency?

A simple 6 step guide for solving this common Delta problem quickly and effectively by GetHuman

Before you get started, be sure you have: Name on the ticket, Billing address, Booking reference, Date of booking, Flight number
You can do this two ways but the first one is to go to the refunds page online to submit the issue to Delta.
Under "Contact Information" enter your First and Last Name, and your billing address
Enter your information in "Ticket Information."
Enter Flight Information in "Flight Information."
In the section for "Reason for Request" click Flight Cancellation from the drop down menu. Under that you can describe the issue that you had that caused you to miss your flight. If you would like to let them know that it was a personal emergency, you can do that but if you aren't comfortable letting them know the exact reason, then leave that part out.
