Jimmy Patronis: Insurance Villages Issue $7.5 Million for Floridians Impacted by Hurricane Ian

This week, state Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis announced that recent Hurricane Ian insurance villages in Southwest Florida issued nearly $7.5 million for policyholders in insurance claims checks.

Last week, approximately 15 insurance companies, including representatives from the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the Florida Department of Business Regulation (DBPR), and the Florida Association of Public Adjusters, were on hand at three insurance villages in Punta Gorda and Ft. Myers to assist more than 400 southwest Florida consumers impacted by Hurricane Ian.

“We were in Southwest Florida before, during, and after Hurricane Ian, and we will remain there as long as it takes to get Floridians back on their feet. Last week, as we recognized the one-year anniversary of this devastating storm, insurance consumers met face-to-face with their insurer and secured more than $7.5 million in outstanding Hurricane Ian claims checks. Since January, our insurance villages have helped thousands of residents secure more than $24 million in claims. That’s an amazing accomplishment, and I am so proud of all the work that has been done over the past year to help get these communities back on their feet. While we have made great strides in recovery, there is still much more to be done. My office remains committed to ensuring those impacted by Hurricane Ian are made whole as quickly as possible,” Patronis said.

Since January, Patronis has also deployed fourteen insurance villages in Southwest Florida, where more than $24 million in insurance claims checks were cut by participating insurance companies for nearly 3,500 residents impacted by Hurricane Ian. The insurance villages allow policyholders to meet with their property insurer in person and work together to solve any outstanding claims.
