FEMA issues proof of loss extension for flood insurance claims

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (“FEMA”) has issued another extension to policyholders under the National Flood Insurance Program (“NFIP”) to file a proof of loss with supporting documentation for claims related to the August 2016 flooding.

Under the new extension, announced by FEMA on December 2, 2016, policyholders will now have a total of 180 days from the date of loss to provide a completed, signed, and sworn-to proof of loss to their insurer.

A proof of loss package should include an itemization of damaged items, with photographs, receipts, and other supporting documentation evidencing the value of the damaged items. A proof of loss is necessary for the NFIP to make payment on a claim. 

Read the complete FEMA statement regarding the most recent extension here.
