The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has granted an additional 30-day extension for National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) policyholders to file claims associated with Hurricane Hermine and an additional 60-day extension to file claims associated with Hurricane Matthew. Louisiana flood victims now have 180 days from the date of loss to file a flood insurance claim for their losses caused by the Great Flood of 2016.

For more information on Hermine claims, read the FEMA bulletin at: http://nfipiservice.com/Stakeholder/pdf/bulletin/w-16087.pdf

For more information on Matthew claims, read the FEMA bulletin at: http://www.nfipiservice.com/Stakeholder/pdf/bulletin/w-16088.pdf

Typically, NFIP policyholders have 60 days to file a “Proof of Loss” claim with their insurance company following the date of loss. The extensions give NFIP policyholders additional time to make a claim for flood damages sustained as a result of both storms.
