Mississippi victims of March flooding now have more time to file their required Proof of Loss form. State Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has granted a request for an extension to the usual 60-day proof of loss deadline. With this extension, victims from flooding that occurred between March 7 and March 19, and who had difficulty filing claims within the normal period because they were unable to access National Flood Insurance Program insured buildings due to the damage to infrastructure or high water will now have a total of 120 days from the date of loss to file.
