The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has started releasing letters offering homeowners devastated by Superstorm Sandy to have their claims reviewed, NJ.com reported May 18.
The move has been undertaken amid allegations that flood insurers altered Hurricane Sandy damage reports to shortchange claimants. After receiving the letter, homeowners are given 90 days to respond. They can also request a review either by calling 866-337-4262 or by downloading a request form online. FEMA, on the other hand, is given 90 days to finish a review upon receiving it.
U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez hopes that FEMA’s action would give homeowners the opportunity to obtain the aid they are legitimately entitled to.
Flood insurers employing bad business practices to reject or delay the benefits of claimants who qualify for coverage are breaching their commitment to serve their policy holders.
