About Your Policy

If you need to make a claim, refer to your policy documents. You can view your carrier contact information there.

For Cover Auto customers, your claims will be handled by Littleton Claims. The contact information will be in your policy documents in the app.
Once we’ve confirmed payment, Cover’s insurance advisor will email your policy documents to you. If you are a Cover Auto customer, you can access your policy documents and your insurance card on the mobile app.
Taking photos is a requirement for all Cover Auto policies, but with other policies we sell, you can still insure your property without this step. However, sending us photos at the beginning of a policy is very useful. In the event of a claim, it’s helpful for the insurance company to see your property in good condition to sufficiently compensate you for your loss. These photos are especially useful for all the important things in your home.

About Referrals

Cover’s Referral Program enables existing Cover customers to reward friends by sending them a referral link. If the referred customer buys an insurance policy through Cover, the existing customer and new customer will both receive $50 Amazon gift cards. $25 if the customer is a resident of Texas.
Cover customers are each assigned a unique link, which can be found by signing into the Cover app and visiting the referral page. Simply click “Share my Link” and send to friends via email, text, or social media. If they sign up via your link and make a qualifying purchase, you both earn your reward.

Aside from the $50 gift card reward, customers who refer a new customer who does not file a claim, cancel, or lapse payment within one year of being a Cover customer, are also eligible for a one-time bonus reward of $250.

Please see our Terms & Conditions for more details.
For you to qualify for the gift card, your friend has to:
  • Sign up for Cover using your unique link – this is how we’ll know you sent them!
  • Make a qualifying purchase of an insurance policy through Cover.
Unfortunately, there isn’t any way for us to track the referral back to your account if they did not use your unique link to register.
Generally, you can expect to receive your referral gift card within 1 day of your referral’s qualifying purchase.
The more, the merrier! You can invite as many people you want. However, please note that in order to receive a gift card, referrals must be new to Cover. Additionally, Cover customers are eligible to receive a lifetime maximum of $500 in gift cards total.
If a referred friend receives links from multiple Cover customers, only the corresponding customer to the referral link used by the friend will receive the gift card.

In regards to the one-time payment of $250, each customer can only claim this reward once – for referring a customer who does not file a claim, cancel, or lapse payment within one year of purchase – regardless of how many of their referrals meet this criteria.
