Federal officials to review Isabel insurance claims

April 23, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Homeowners can have their Tropical Storm Isabel insurance claims reviewed by federal officials Wednesday in Queen Anne's County and Thursday in Edgewater.

During the meetings, National Flood Insurance Program claims specialists will gather information and documentation from property owners to compare with case files from private insurance companies. The specialists may also order a reinspection of the damaged property.

Claims specialists will summarize their findings in written statements. If specialists find that the original settlement was unfair, residents will also receive an adjusted settlement from their insurance company.

Wednesday's meeting will be held from noon to 6:30 p.m. in the Kent Island United Methodist Church at Cox Neck Road and Route 50. Thursday's meeting will be held from noon to 7 p.m. in the South County Senior Center, at 27 Stepneys Lane.

Appointments are not necessary.
