New Jersey residents who sustained damage from Hurricane Irene have only two more weeks to register for assistance through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The deadline is Oct. 31, 2011.
“Two weeks may sound like plenty of time, but the 31st will be here before you know it,” said FEMA’s Federal Coordinating Officer William L. Vogel. “If you had damage and haven’t registered yet, please do so before it’s too late.”
Even if an insurance settlement has not yet been reached, individuals must register before the Oct. 31 deadline or the opportunity to be considered for federal assistance may be lost. Though FEMA will not duplicate insurance benefits, expenses not covered by insurance may be eligible for federal grants after the claim has been paid.
