WATCH VIDEO: USA Today: FEMA Underpays Louisiana Flood Policy Holders

The Fraud and Underpayments of Flood Claims has been going on for several years.  Congress has had investigations on this issue in 2015.  60 Minutes had an Investigative Report on this issue.  There was a group, led by Steve Kanstoroom, in 2004 that testified in Congress about this issue.

NFIP acting Administrator, Roy Wright, claimed he would “pay all Superstorm Sandy Claims in 90” days rings hollow when 4.5 years after Superstrom Sandy over 7,000 flood policy holders still have not “settled” their claim, let alone gotten paid a fair claim.

Dear Louisiana, NY, NJ, FL, NC, SC and Georgia Flood Survivors,

If you have not received a fair claim.  DO NOT WAIT ANY LONGER.

Call AND Email your Congressmen and Senators, click her to find their info.  Tell them your issue, also let them know you are a STOP FEMA NOW member.  THERE IS POWER IN NUMBERS.

This is a Federal ISSUE.  One Congressman or Senator can not fix the system.  But Several Congressmen and Senators across NY, NJ, LA, FL, SC, NC and GA can affect change.

The NFIP needs Congressional Reauthorization this year.  Your Congressmen and Senators need to know the problems with this program before they vote to continue funding this program.

You must stand up for yourself or you will be waiting for years!

Why are 7,000 Sandy Survivors Still waiting to have their flood claims settled and paid?

Roy Wright, the Acting NFIP head, stated he would have the Sandy Review process finished in 90 days!  Why after 2 years are 7,000 homeowners still waiting to get paid?  Read the full story here

Read what Senator Menendez and Congressman MacArthur have said about FEMA’s denials, underpayment and fraud with the Sandy Flood Claims


“A pattern began to emerge after constituents shared with me horror stories of being paid pennies on the dollar on their flood insurance policies. FEMA denied this, but I trusted the victims.


We quickly learned of a widespread scheme to deny and underpay. Engineering reports had been altered after the fact. Denials came with creative reasons like “preexisting condition” or “earth movement.” I led Congressional hearings and the Sandy Task Force, and pounded FEMA and the insurance companies until they agreed to reopen every single Sandy flood insurance claim for those who thought they were underpaid.”


-Senator Menedez, October 2016                                                          Read the full article here




“U.S. Rep. Tom MacArthur had some harsh words for the Federal Emergency Management Agency and its administrator, W. Craig Fugate.


He wants an “immediate investigation” into the agency over allegations that it knew of fraudulent practices used to deny full insurance payouts to victims of Hurricane Sandy — as well as Fugate’s head.


“I am outraged and saddened to hear reports that FEMA may have turned a blind eye to corrupt and fraudulent practices used to deny full assistance to families and individuals recovering from Superstorm Sandy,” MacArthur said in a statement. “It is simply shocking that the Agency could have known about these private insurers’ wrongdoings as early as August of 2013, yet did nothing about it.”

“I have long been a champion for restoring accountability to FEMA, and this latest news underscores the need for real change at the Agency,” MacArthur added. “That is why I am also calling upon W. Craig Fugate to resign from his role as FEMA Administrator. For too long, this Agency has mishandled their fundamental role to help disaster survivors. Administrator Fugate has failed as a leader and must step down before any further harm is done.”

Congressman MacArthur – March 2015                Read the full story here


We urge all Sandy Survivors, in NY and NJ, to call their Senators and Congressmen to call for a full investigation into the Fraud / Underpayments and to receive their full and fair payment in a timely fashion.

Dear Advocate: Isn’t it odd that Louisiana homeowners are still waiting to get paid on their Flood Claims – 6 months after the Great Flood?

Dear Advocate Staff,


We are asking you to dig deeper into FEMA’s statistics.  Specifically about the Flood Insurance Claims.


FEMA has lied to Congressman Pallone – NJ, about Superstorm Sandy Flood Claims.  over 4.5 years have passed from Superstorm Sandy and homeowners are still trying to get paid fairly on their claim.  Read how they lied about how the Flood Claims have been handled.


Don’t you find it odd that homeowners, who did everything right and had flood insurance, are still waiting to get paid….. 6 months after the Great Storm?


Mr. Hardy’s article states that the average homeowner has received $85,000 per homeowner.  For an average 1,500 sq. foot home that equals $57 per square foot.  This amount is woefully short.  FEMA is not paying to replace the brick facades (the plywood behind the facade needs to be replaced, the only way to replace it is to remove the facade, replace the plywood and rebuild a new facade- A Majority of the homeowners are not getting paid for this).  FEMA is misrepresenting the room sizes.  FEMA is forgetting to add  items that were flooded such as doors, electrical wiring, top cabinets and more…  FEMA is “losing” homeowners paperwork on an industrial scale.


Shouldn’t a home that was deemed “Substantially Damaged” be awarded a “Substantial” flood insurance claim?


The goal of FEMA is to wear folks down.  Every day another handful of homeowners “give up the fight and settle” and take what settlement FEMA gives them.  Read here why NY/NJ homeonwers were reluctant to re-open their flood claims after Superstorm Sandy


This is the same underpayments, delays and denials like we had in NY and NJ after Superstorm Sandy.  We suspect you will find fraud like we exposed on 60 Minutes and here Congressman MacArthur calls for FEMA Adminsitrator Fugate to be investigated and Fired after another whistleblower comes out and exposes more fraud.


We have made two trips to SouthEast Louisiana since the Great Storm.  We have found the same systematic underpayment, denial and delays.  Watch newscast from our meetings with SE LA residents.


We urge the staff and editors at the Advocate to please look into this.  Peoples homes will depend on you.


Nothing would please us more than for you to prove us wrong.
