DFS to deploy Hurricane Ian Insurance Villages to Southwest Florida

Today, the Department of Financial Services (DFS) announced as a follow up to last year’s deployment of initial payment centers to Southwest Florida due to Hurricane Ian, the Division of Consumer Services will host 3 Insurance Villages during the week of January 23rd through January 28th.

These villages will serve as an opportunity for policyholders to meet their property insurer in-person and work together to resolve outstanding claims.

Representatives from the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and more than a dozen insurers are expected to be on hand to assist insurance consumers.

Policyholders should bring as much documentation as they can, including:

  • A driver’s license or other form of identification (Passport/State issued ID)
  • Insurance cards and insurance policy information/documentation
  • Pictures or documentation of the property being claimed as a loss resulting from Hurricane Ian
  • Repair estimates
  • Any additional insurance-related information that is readily accessible.

Due to space limitations, the insurance villages will exclusively focus on insurance related-issues and staff from other agencies will not be present to assist with other post-storm benefits. For more information visit FloridaDisaster.org.
