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.
*All insurance villages will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST.
