The Federal Emergency Management Agency has decided to grant a 30 day deadline extension to victims of Superstorm Sandy who are interested in filing an appeal of their flood insurance settlement.
The announcement of FEMA’s decision was distributed by the office of Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ), who said he came through with a promise to “hold FEMA’s feet to the fire and ensure the process was fair and not a repeat of the first attempt.”
The deadline to file appeals was Tuesday. The new deadline is Oct. 15, 2015.
“This 30 day extension will help keep that promise and give Sandy survivors the time they need to understand the rules, opt in and have their claim reviewed,” Menendez said in a statement.
