Time Running Out To Challenge Sandy Flood Claims

TRENTON (AP) -

The window is closing on homeowners who think they were shortchanged on their Superstorm Sandy flood claims.

Thursday is the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s deadline to review the claims of more than 144,000 homeowners participating in the National Flood Insurance Program. FEMA is allowing them to ask for their claims to be reviewed following complaints that many homeowners were underpaid.

As of last week, more than 16,000 policyholders had asked for a review.
