Flood insurance policyholders who have been underpaid for damages to their homes or businesses only have until Saturday, August, 25 to submit FEMA Proof of Loss forms. Submitting a Proof of Loss is the only way that policyholders can receive additional money for their flood insurance claims. If the deadline is missed, the claim is permanently closed, making it impossible to receive the money they deserve to rebuild.
With only eight days left before the deadline, it is crucial that the Proof of Loss is accurately completed and submitted as soon as possible. Keep these important Proof of Loss points in mind:
- It’s the policyholder’s responsibility to fill out the Proof of Loss and submit all supporting documentation to the insurance company.
- Detailed estimates of the damage must be secured—a contractor’s estimate will not be enough.
- The Proof of Loss must adhere to FEMA’s strict standards and there’s no room for mistakes.
- The process can be complicated, which is why seeking help from experienced flood insurance claims lawyers can be valuable to ensure everything is completed correctly.
- Look for a law firm that sends their own certified adjusters to assess the damage and complete necessary documentation.
