How Do I File an Insurance Claim with Verizon Wireless?

Verizon offers insurance for its devices through Asurion. If you have a Verizon device that has been broken, lost, or stolen, and if you have insurance for that device, you can easily file a claim. You can either file the claim on the MyVerizon app or on Asurion's website.

If you have a Verizon device with one of Verizon's insurance options on it, then you're covered in case the device breaks down or gets stolen or lost. This article will show you how to file an insurance claim with Verizon to fix or replace your Verizon device.

Filing a Claim Using the MyVerizon App

If you have the MyVerizon app, filing a claim is pretty easy. Just follow these steps:

  1. Open the app.
  2. Tap on the Menu icon located in the upper left corner of the screen.
  3. Tap on Devices.
  4. Scroll down to find the device you want to file a claim on.

Please note that you must pay your deductible at the time you file your claim. If your device needs to be replaced, you can get it shipped to you by the next day, or possibly even on the same day.

Filing a Claim With Asurion
