FEMA Extends Filing Deadline from 60 Days to 90 Days for Florida Hurricane Hermine NFIP Flood Insurance Claims

Oct 26, 2016

The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation advised today, October 26, 2016, that, “after productive discussions between Insurance Commissioner David Altmaier and representatives of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)” on ways to assist Floridians impacted by the widespread flooding caused by Hurricane Hermine, an extension of 30 days has been granted for National Flood Insurance Program (“NFIP”) policyholders to file claims. 

Typically, NFIP policyholders have 60 days to file a “Proof of Loss” claim with their insurance company following the date of loss. 

This extension gives Florida NFIP policyholders a total of 90 days to make a claim for flooding damages sustained as a result of Hurricane Hermine.
