FEMA Urges Filing for Insured Customers

The Federal Emergency Management Agency issued the following news release:

If you registered for assistance with FEMA and have not already contacted your insurance agent to file a claim, do so as soon as possible.

FEMA cannot give you money for items covered by private insurance, but may be able to help with essential needs not covered by your policy.

Victims are encouraged to register first with FEMA and later report their insurance settlement.

Unless notified of insurance claim settlements, FEMA help is limited.
