What is the Expenses Claim Form (OCF-6)?

You can complete the OCF-6, also known as the Expenses Claim Form, and submit it to your auto insurance provider so that you can claim expenses you incurred as a result of your accident. If you wish to claim expenses that your other forms will not cover, you must actively request the OCF-6.

You can download the OCF-6 here.

What information does the OCF-6 require?

In addition to your personal information (name, address, phone number), the OCF-6 requires a list of goods and services you wish to claim as expenses resulting from your accident. This list will include a description of each good and/or service, including the names of service providers. In addition, you need to enclose the many bills and receipts from those goods and services or explain why you cannot provide these.

Examples of goods and services you may be able to claim on the OCF-6 include:

  • assistive devices required because of your accident (e.g., walkers, prosthetics, crutches, wheelchairs).
  • caregiver and/or attendant care benefits (optional).
  • clothing or personal belongings lost, damaged, or destroyed in the accident.
  • clothing or personal belongings lost, damaged, or destroyed in the accident.
  • housekeeping and home maintenance (optional).
  • lost educational expenses (e.g., non-refundable tuition, in case you cannot attend classes due to your injuries).
  • transportation costs incurred because of your injuries.
  • travel expenses for visitors whose help you need to recover.

Be accurate and thorough as you fill in the OCF-6 and tally your expenses. If you have questions about this form or any other step of the Auto Insurance Claims process, contact us at McNally Gervan to see how we can help you.
