Free help is available today to Town of Hempstead residents looking for answers to insurance-related questions as they clean up from the damage caused by Tropical Storm Irene.
The New York State Insurance Department Mobile Resource Center will be at Cedar Creek Park’s Administration Building in Wantagh until 8 p.m.
Representatives from the insurance department will address questions from residents related to processing private insurance claims and other disaster relief and reimbursement programs, including assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
“For our residents who were hit especially hard by Irene, it is a stressful time,” Town Councilwoman Angie Cullin said in a statement. “Hopefully this free service will help address some of their concerns.”
Residents are asked to bring copies of their homeowner’s insurance documents, if available. A Consumer Guide to Insurance for Natural Disasters, issued by insurance department, is available at ins.state.ny.us.
