BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana 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.
Policy owners now have until April 22 to complete their proof of loss claims.
The National Flood Insurance Program usually requires claims to be reported within 60 days of the date of loss but extensions have been granted because access to homes was limited by damage and high water.
Failure to submit the proof of loss could cause policyholders to miss out on benefits from their flood insurance policy.
