FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Monday, February 11, 2013
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congressman Frank Pallone will meet with victims of Superstorm Sandy who have experienced significant delays and complications when filing claims with the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Pallone issued a letter to Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Craig Fugate on February 6, 2013 drawing his attention to the difficulties and challenges faced by residents filing claims with NFIP.
Pallone represents Union Beach, which was one of the hardest hit areas on the Jersey Shore during Superstorm Sandy. Union Beach residents filing claims with NFIP have faced extraordinary complications, lengthy delays and have been required to provide unreasonable volumes of paperwork and information to the federally run insurance program.
“Union Beach residents have been through enough,” said Pallone. “Now they are experiencing unacceptable delays and being put through an unreasonably complicated system that is loaded with red tape. These people are still living through a crisis and they are trying to put their lives back together. The last thing they need is to be held up by bureaucratic delays.”
Joining Pallone will be Sandy victims who will share their experiences with filing NFIP claims.
Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. will meet with Union Beach residents to hear concerns about the NFIP claims process
