National Grid is a natural gas and electric company that services the northeastern section of the United States, namely, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Nantucket and upstate New York. Sometimes the power can go out in these areas due to ice storms and too much usage. Although you cannot submit a claim for loss of business or any other losses during an outage, you can claim damage to personal property.

Download and print the proper claims form, depending on your region. National Grid supplies three separate forms: one for upstate New York, one for downstate New York and one for New England.

Read through the form and make sure National Grid will actually cover your claim. Familiarize yourself the rules attached to submitting the claim.

Fill out all sections of the claim with a pen to the best of your ability. Make sure you are clear and concise with your explanation of damages.

Write the claims address on an envelope. Each address will differ depending on the region. Mail the claim.

Tips

  • Alternatively, you can call the claims center using these numbers: Upstate New York (315 428-6267), New York City and surrounding areas (631 348-4115) and New England (781 907-3930).
