Touro Law Center Disaster Relief Clinic Attorney Melissa Luckman held a presentation on Wednesday, May 27 to walk homeowners through the FEMA Sandy Claims Review Process.
The items addressed included understanding your policy coverage and limits, administrative review process for Hurricane Sandy claims, document submission and duplication of benefits analysis.
The Disaster Relief Clinic is working to educate as many homeowners as possible in obtaining the maximum amount of flood insurance proceeds to assist homeowners in moving back home and/or alleviating the stress of current and growing bills. Homeowners can contact the Touro Law Center Disaster Relief Clinic for assistance with any claims stemming from Hurricane Sandy including flood insurance, New York Rising assistance, contractor issues, and FEMA recoupments etc. by calling the hotline at (631) 761-7198.
NOTE: We have been advised by FEMA that an Affidavit for up to $7,500 may ONLY be submitted for the re-review of CONTENTS CLAIMS. Additionally, there will be guidelines released setting forth exactly what needs to be stated in the Affidavit. An Affidavit CAN NOT be used to support a CONTENTS/BUILDING claim.
