How Insurance Issues Can Affect Disaster Survivors
Loss of Your HomeFloods, hurricanes, and other acts of God may leave your house uninhabitable. Without sufficient insurance payments for cleaning and repairs, you may never be able to move back into your home.
Forced RelocationHomeowners may be forced by necessity to move. This could be relocation to a different part of the city or a different part of the state, affecting employment, education, child care, and other aspects of life.
Financial HardshipsRepairing your home and moving are major financial burdens. Without sufficient coverage, you may be forced to take loans or dip into your savings, making an already desperate situation more difficult.
Devastation to the CommunityWe've focused a lot on the legal and financial concerns of the individual, but disasters affect the whole community. The cumulative destruction and financial instability puts entire groups of people at risk.
