(IMPORTANT UPDATE TO THIS POST:  On February 20, 2009, the NFIP Administrator issued an additional 90-day extension to file proofs of loss for Hurricane Ike and Gustav.)

Javier Delgado, in our Houston office, called to tell me he had just been retained on several flood insurance claims. I was apprehensive because I know there is a National Flood Insurance deadline quickly approaching. Javier has a lot of work to do in a short period of time. From past experience, I know people will miss the deadline or fail to properly complete the National Flood Proof of Loss form.

Since the deadline is approaching, I suggest everybody interested in this topic read my prior post, A Warning Regarding Federal Flood Proofs of Loss.
