It takes about 30 days, on average, for an insurer to pay out a claim, but this may vary depending on the circumstances. To ensure that your claim is handled as quickly as possible, be responsive and detailed when answering any questions your insurance company might have. If your claim is taking too long, you can contact your insurer directly or go to your state’s insurance regulator for help.

You could have as little as 30 days to file a car insurance claim, or you could have months or even two to three years.
