Upon damage approval by the insurance surveyor the damage amounts are processed by xChange. In case both parties are xChange members the revised total estimate is settled through the wallet immediately. Following, the refund amounts are approved and added to the wallet of the insured party.
The total claim amount is usually settled completely with the accepted refund and your xChange DPP.
