Deadline to Apply for FEMA Aid after Hurricane Sandy Extended to February 27

(Long Island, N.Y.) Assemblymember Edward Hennessey is pleased to announce that the deadline to apply for FEMA Aid after Hurricane Sandy has been extended for 30 days to February 27. Also, FEMA announced it will continue to pay hotel bills for Hurricane Sandy victims for at least 14 more days. The federal program was set to expire on Sunday.

FEMA disaster assistance is financial or direct assistance to individuals and families whose property has been damaged or destroyed as a result of Hurricane Sandy and whose losses are not covered by insurance.

FEMA assistance is available to anyone affected by Hurricane Sandy-homeowners and renters. People who sustained losses in Suffolk County due to Hurricane Sandy are encouraged to register with FEMA even if they have insurance. You can apply online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov via a smartphone at m.fema.gov or by phone at 800-621-3362. Hearing or speech impaired residents may call TTY 800-462-7585.

When you apply have a pen, paper and the following information ready:

  • Your Social Security Number
  • Current and pre-disaster address
  • Telephone number where you can be contacted
  • Insurance information
  • Total household annual income
  • A routing and account number from your bank (if you want to have assistance funds transferred directly to your account)
  • A description of your losses caused by the disaster

Because of the increasing frequency of natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy that have devastated so many Long Island communities, I am supporting new legislation that creates the Homeowners Bill of Rights to ensure that insurance companies inform homeowners of their policy’s specific details (A.2287) and a second measure to create a more timely and thorough response from insurance companies in case of disaster (A.1092),” said Assemblymember Hennessey.
