Sandy Victims Get 6 More Months to File FEMA Doc

NEW YORK (AP) -

Victims of Superstorm Sandy still fighting for a bigger insurance payment from the companies that administer the federal flood insurance program are getting a six-month extension to file critical paperwork, the Federal Emergency Management Agency announced Tuesday.

FEMA had given homeowners until the storm’s anniversary on Oct. 29 to submit a critical legal document called a proof-of-loss form, which acts as an inventory of things they believe should be covered in any insurance settlement. They will now have until April 28.
