What is non-recoverable depreciation?

Non-Recoverable depreciation is depreciation that is not recoverable, that is the obvious answer. In most states a standard Replacement Cost Policy will pay an insured for the replacement cost minus deprecation. As long as you replace the item within a specified amount of time which is typically anywhere from 90 days to a year, you will be able to recover the amount that was depreciated. In a Actual Cash Value type policy this depreciation is NOT recoverable. It is very important to know what type of policy you have before you need it!

What is the difference between impairment and depreciation?

Depreciation means the depreciable amount of an asset (cost/revalued amount less residual value) is allocated on a systematic basis over its useful life.Depreciation = Depreciable amount / Useful lifeImpairment means when an asset/s carrying amount is exceeds its recoverable amount, the amount over recoverable amount should be write off from carrying amount and present in Balance Sheet. This process is call as ImpairmentAn impairment (loss) is the amount by which the carrying amount (i.e. balance sheet value) of an asset or cash-generating unit exceeds its recoverable amount.Impairment = Carrying value - Recoverable amountIf there is any indication that an asset may be impaired, the entity should estimate its recoverable amount. If the recoverable amount is less than the carrying amount, the carrying amount of the asset should be reduced to the recoverable amount.

If your adjusters check is more than the repair cost what do you do?

If there is recoverable depreciation involved in the claim then when you send your adjuster the invoice showing the amount for repairs was less, they will subtract the difference between the adjusters check, and the amount of your invoice, from the recoverable depreciation amount. Lets say your adjuster estimate the repairs to be $1,000 RCV and they with held $500 in depreciation. So they cut you a check for $500 with the remaining $500 withheld in recoverable depreciation. If you show them that you completed the repairs for less than $500 then they will not return any of the other $500 they withheld for depreciation as you got the repairs completed for less. If you showed then you got the repairs completed for say $800 then they would release $300 of the $500 they were holding and keep the remaining $200. If you showed them the repairs cost the full $1,000 they estimated for the will release the full $500 they were withholding in depreciation. If there is not recoverable depreciation withheld then forgot everything you just read and keep the change.

What is recoverable depreciation?

Recoverable Depreciation may be recovered from the insurance company.Recoverable depreciation usually refers to monies held back for repairs. In essence, once a claim has been filed, usually by phone on a 24 hour claim hotline, an adjuster from the insurance goes to the home that has been damaged, assesses the damage, mails the itemization breakdown of damages called a "Scope" to the claimant showing amount of money allowing for repairs. Sometimes a check is sent before the Scope is sent, sometimes with, and sometimes after. State Farm prints out a Scope along with a check on the spot the same day. The check will be an amount minus the deductible. The insurance company holds back the "Recoverable Depreciation" until proof that repairs has been completed is received. This proof usually comes from the contractor. However, proof may be accepted by the insurance company from the claimant with certain documentation requested by the insurance company provided by the contractor. Their are cases in which the insurance company will send both the initail repair check and recoverable depreciation together in one check. This may occur if the claimant owns the home with no mortgage company involved or the amount of both checks are small usually $5,000 or less. If the claim check issued by the insurance company is larger than $5000 the check may have the check issued to the claimant and the mortgage company. If this is the case, the claimant must send endorse the check over to the lender and the lender than will cash the check and mail their own check back to the claimant. This can take 1-4 weeks depending on the lender and location. With many insurance companies, if the claimant does not have the work done within a designated time, usually, 180 days from the date the damage occured, the recoverable depreciation may be lost.The insurance companies argue that this is to protect the consumer when, more often than not, it serves to frustrate rather than help the claimant.These monies are not to be confused with 'uncovered or disallowed' claims. Recoverable depreciation is "incentive" money that has already been determined as needed by the claimant to help with repairs. More times than not, the initial check is NOT enough to cover the total of repair and the claimant may be in a pickle if they cannot find a contractor to work with them on a partial payment and then reimbursed by the insurance company after completion of repairs.
