FEMA: No deadline extension for filing insurance suits


WASHINGTON — The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has said there will be no extension on the deadline for Superstorm Sandy victims to file lawsuits challenging a "denial or disallowance of all or part of their federal flood insurance claims," according to the Insurance Journal.

The announcement comes after U.S. Senator Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and U.S. Representative Peter King (R-Seaford, N.Y.) asked FEMA to extend the 12-month statute of limitations for Sandy victims who are still seeking to legally challenge their flood insurance payout amounts in civil actions, the article stated.

According to the article, homeowners can sue "within one year from the date they received their first written denial for any portion of their National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) policy claims."
