Deadline Extended for Isaac-Related Flood Insurance Claims

St. John the Baptist Parish, La. – St. John the Baptist Parish officials announced Friday that the deadline for property owners to make flood insurance claims related to Hurricane Isaac has been extended for the fourth time.

Officials say property owners with flood insurance policies whose homes or other structures were damaged during Hurricane Isaac have an additional 60 days to file claims for their flood-related losses. This means most policyholders have until April 22 to complete their proof of loss claims.

With the latest 60-day extension on flood insurance claims, St. John the Baptist Parish residents have 240 days from the date of their insured losses to submit a claim, known as Proof of Loss.

Hurricane Isaac first made landfall in Louisiana on Aug. 28, 2012, with heavy rainfall and flooding occurring within several days before and after it hit. For this reason the date of loss varies for property owners.

Policyholders with questions about flood insurance or concerns about their claims may, call FEMA program experts at 1-866-331-1679 or 1-866-330-7286, or visit www.floodsmart.gov.
