Courtney reminds Eastern Connecticut constituents to request Hurricane Sandy claim reviews ahead of FEMA deadline

(WTNH) — Congressman Joe Courtney is reminding eastern Connecticut constituents with National Flood Insurance policies, who filed claims for damages from Hurricane Sandy that were not paid, to request a claim review by September 15.

To be eligible for the review, policyholders must have experienced flood damage between Oct 27, 2012 and Nov. 6, 2012 as a result of Hurricane Sandy. They must also have had an active NFIP at the time of the loss.

“If homeowners or business owners have claims they believe were wrongly denied, I encourage them to file a request for review as soon as possible ahead of the September 15th deadline. Our region sustained significant damage during the storm, and homeowners should receive all reimbursements due to them to restore their property,” said Courtney.

Policyholders can call the NFIP’s Hurricane Sandy claims center at (866)377-4262 to request a review or click here to download a form requesting a review.

The completed form can be submitted:
By email: FEMA-sandyclaimsreview@fema.dhs.gov
By fax: 202-646-7970

According to FEMA, the review process is intended to be simple for policyholders and most reviews are completed within 90 days. Constituents with additional questions about the process may contact Congressman Courtney’s office at (860)886-0139.
