    Folks should know that the 24 hour assistance line means that you will get to talk to someone in the middle of the night but all approvals and guarantees of payment will not be issued until normal business hours. Meaning if you have a claim during that time you will be paying for it out of pocket and hoping you can gather enough paperwork to get reimbursed. Our claim is not complete so I can't say how easy/hard the filing and payment process will be.

    Tin Leg was exemplary. They made the process simple; only required essential documentation; had customer support for questions that was speedy and efficient and friendly. They paid the claim in record time. I would highly recommend them. This is my second experience with them and both times they were wonderful.

    Having gotten sick just several days before I was to leave on my much- waited for trip, my physician said travel was out of the question. I contacted Customer service to discuss filing a claim. Over the next 2 weeks I had occasion to call several time with questions. Everyone I spoke with, ( especially Jodi, was kind, compassionate, responsive, helpful, etc.

    Once I filed the required documents, my claim was approved in full and now the check is in the mail. I cannot tell you how impressed I am with both Squaremouth and Tin Leg. Two thumbs up!
