Basic Claim Requirements

Product Identification

Product Identification can be established in several ways. For a complete description, please see the Claim Instructions Section 3: Product Identification.

Proof of payment

The Proof of Payment requirement instructions can also be found in the Claim Instructions Section 4: Funds Expended.


As of December 2016, the requirement of "before and after" photos has been added to the claims process. Photos should depict the vermiculite in the subject property as the "before" photo, and the same general location should be depicted in the "after" photo prior to any reinsulation. Claimants who choose to submit reinsulation costs should also include an additional "after" photo of the reinsulated area.

If the vermiculite has already been removed, an "after" or current photo is still required, even if the area has been reinsulated or restored.
