FEMA Grants Gov. Edwards’ Request for NFIP Claims-Filing Extension

February 6, 2017

Gov. John Bel Edwards says the Federal Emergency Management Agency granted his request to extend by 90 days the proof-of-loss deadline for flood survivors who file claims through the National Flood Insurance Program. The new deadline is May 10. 

It’s the third proof-of-loss extension FEMA has granted. Policyholders are asked to submit proof of loss as soon as possible. The forms can be submitted directly to insurance adjusters.
