    This is correct.

    The insurance company is paying the actual cash value of the stolen items. Once she replaces them, she gets the difference between the actual cash value and the replacement cost. Most policies say that you have 180 days from the date of loss to replace the items and get paid the difference.

    There is language in her policy that says this is how it will be handled. It's a pretty standard clause.

    It's standard. You get depreciated value up front, and if/when you replace the items, then you get the difference between cost to replace, and the depreciated amount.

    Usually you get 180 days to replace the items.
