Managing a Warranty claim
A claim unit case is either paid, appealed, denied, or closed.

Appealing and denying a claim
When a claim unit is denied or paid partially, a dealer can appeal the claim.
To appeal a claim, complete the following steps:
- Log in as a dealer. For more information on login credentials, see Operators list and description.
- Search for an applicable claim unit to appeal and open it.
- Click .
- Update the appeal with the appropriate data and click .

Appeal process flow
If an assessor denies a claim unit, the system updates the Warranty claim status to Resolved-Denied. The claim is then automatically reassigned back to the dealer to be appealed again.
Closing a claim
When closing a claim, you must decide whether any further action is required or anticipated on a claim unit. This process includes ensuring that all financial aspects of the claim unit are completed and that all correspondence is closed.
Once the claim is resolved, the claim unit status is updated to Resolved-Completed.
