Residents impacted by Hurricane Sandy whose homes were insured by the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) are facing a late April 2014 deadline to submit all proof of loss documents and comply with NFIP claim requirements. Homeowners who have not appealed or filed additional forms and proof of damages by this deadline will lose the right to challenge their NFIP settlement. The Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund has partnered with United Policyholders, a non-profit insurance consumer organization, to host a webinar open to Relief Fund grantees, partners and New Jersey homeowners that will provide guidance on preparing these necessary documents. The webinar will be held on Wednesday, March 26, 2014 at 12:30pm ET and will walk participants through the NFIP claim and appeal rules, and best practices for documenting and filing losses. To participate in the webinar register at: www.uphelp.org/webinar
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Homeowners, Case Managers, Non-profits active in Sandy Recovery &
Long Term Recovery Groups.
Please help them spread the word about the approaching deadline and this available resource to the families, individuals and communities you serve by posting it on your Facebook or Twitter, sending an email to your contacts, or alerting residents via flyers or word of mouth. All Sandy impacted residents and organizations active in recovery efforts are welcome to logon and learn.
