About a year ago, we were notified that we could submit a claim in a class action lawsuit involving our home insurance provider. The lawsuit stemmed from storm damage homes in our area received in 2001. As part of the conditions to submit a claim, you had to have all the records of home repair from that time frame. Lucky us, we keep everything! And so for the past year the little certified delivery card has been stuck to my bulletin board recording when I sent copies of all the paperwork (I can't recall it was that big a deal to fill in) to Nationwide.
Lo and Behold today we received a letter from the law firm for the class. Can you believe that we are getting a check for $3,300!
It pays to save receipts for big expenses, and to fill in those little class action forms you sometimes get in the mail!
