Property Loss Insurance Claim Process and Restoration Services

The University of Wisconsin System is self-funded for property protection under Wisconsin Statute, Section 20.865. This statute provides coverage for loss of University-owned property, with some exclusions. It applies to buildings, contents, capital equipment, supplies and vehicles.

All losses are subject to a $1000 deductible, with two exceptions: there is a $2500 deductible for theft when there is no sign of forced entry; and $0 deductible on vehicle glass breakage.

If a department becomes aware of a potential claim they should contact the Risk Management Office. An investigation will be conducted and the claim processed if applicable.

Please note that all property claims must be concluded within 90 days of the incident.
