WHY: Residents impacted by Hurricane Sandy and insured by the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) are facing an April 28, 2014 deadline for submitting all proof of loss documents and complying with NFIP claim requirements. Homeowners who have not appealed or filed additional forms and proof of damages by this deadline will lose the right to challenge their NFIP settlement. The NFIP has very specific rules related to damage claims. A property owner must follow the NFIPs rules on submitting proofs of loss and supporting documentation. Through this webinar, homeowners, lawyers and contractors have the opportunity to become familiar with these specific rules and deadlines that apply to NFIP claims, including laws that come into play when a dispute arises. Property owners who do not use the right NFIP forms and/or complete them accurately and/or submit them on time will lose the right to recover additional benefits on their Sandy claims.
