What are the procedures for filing a claim against my auto insurance policy when my car is stolen?

Filing a Car Insurance Claim on Your Stolen Vehicle

If your auto is stolen, your initial response should be similar to any auto accident. First, have a police officer visit the scene and file a police report. Then notify your car insurance company immediately. They will require the following documents: the claim form, a copy of the police report, and a copy of your license and registration. Auto insurance claims for stolen vehicles always take longer to process, because the police are given a reasonable amount of time to locate the stolen car.
