CFO Patronis Partners with Senator Marco Rubio to Open Insurance Villages and Disaster Recovery Centers Across Florida

 

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis today announced that, in partnership with Senator Marco Rubio, insurance villages and disaster recovery centers will be opening next week in areas heavily impacted by Hurricane Irma. Local, state and federal partners will be in attendance to offer Floridians a wide array of relief assistance in one centralized location. 

 

CFO Patronis said, “Getting Floridians back on their feet and back to normalcy is our top priority, and these recovery centers will provide access to the tools and resources needed to help our residents navigate the post-storm recovery and claims-filing process. I am amazed by the strength and sense of community that our state has exhibited in the wake of Irma’s destruction. To my fellow Floridians recovering from Irma’s wrath, help is on the way.” 

 

Insurance experts from CFO Patronis’ Department of Financial Services will be on hand to answer Floridians’ insurance-related questions and concerns. CFO Patronis has also arranged for several insurance companies with policies in the impacted areas to be on-site to help Floridians file post-storm claims. Consumers are encouraged to bring copies of all insurance policies with them to these events. A list of participating insurance companies is available here.
