Team member: Normal expenses explained

Updated by Jennifer B.

A normal expense is the amount you would typically spend in that category for a specified time period, most are per month.

For example, if you put your pet in a pet care center while you're at work and it costs you $400 a month, you would enter $400 as the normal expense for that category. Anything you spend on top of that would be considered additional.

Alternatively, if you leave your pet at home while you go to work and don't have to or don't normally pay for pet care but the temporary housing you are staying in after the loss doesn't allow pets, you would enter $0 for normal expenses and anything you spend for pet care as additional expenses.

You must set up normal expenses before they can be submitted. Examples of normal expense categories include Housing, Meals, and Additional Mileage.
