provided to The Santiva Chronicle

LAKE MARY, Fla. – Applicants for FEMA assistance after Hurricane Ian and Hurricane Nicole should ensure that FEMA has their current contact information. FEMA may need to contact applicants for more information or to arrange a home inspection to verify damage.

If you are referred for a FEMA inspection and have been waiting three weeks or longer, contact FEMA to check on the status of your application. If your contact information has changed, you should update your FEMA application immediately.

To update your information, you can create an account at DisasterAssistance.gov and click the green icon titled “Check Status,” and follow the prompts to create an account or access your account, call 800-621-3362 from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. ET or visit a Disaster Recovery Center. To find a center near you text “DRC” and your Zip Code to 43362 or visit fema.gov/drc.

Applicants should update FEMA concerning changes in insurance, current housing situation, phone number, mailing address and your payment preference. Missing or wrong information could delay the financial assistance you may be eligible to receive. When contacting FEMA, refer to the nine-digit number assigned to you when you applied.
