Homeowners Insurance

Does a zero dollar home insurance claim affect rating a policy?

If you were not paid out, a canceled claim should not have an effect on your premium. Database systems used for cataloging claims history can sometimes confuse this, however.

I started a claim but canceled it with no payout. Why is it on my CLUE report?

Unfortunately, if you start the claims process, the insurance company can list it on your CLUE report through LexisNexis which contains your claims history — even if there was no payout or resolution. You can dispute with State Farm to see if they will remove it, but at this point, that is really the only option which is definitely frustrating.

Does insurance rates increase because of canceled claims?

Any time a claim is reported to your insurance company it can impact your rate. Even if the claim is denied or not filed, the insurance company can still report it.
