Damage Claims

If you've experienced damage to your vehicle or property and would like to submit a claim to the commonwealth, please select your county below to be taken to a page containing information on filing a claim. The commonwealth's Bureau of Finance and Risk Management (FARM) within the Department of General Services is responsible for determining if a claim should be paid.
