We just got word that FEMA is trying to prematurely shut down the neutral review process for people who have been waiting patiently to have their lowball FEMA offers reviewed by a neutral, third-party judge.  FEMA is not even half way through the 2,000 people who asked for neutral judges to review their claims, but now FEMA suddenly is saying that it will cut this process short by not having hearings for any claims after September.  Instead, FEMA is saying that it will just decide everything behind closed doors on the papers.  This is very, very bad because those of you who hired lawyers and fought to get your claims argued in front of judges got paid multiples more than those people who didn’t hire lawyers and took FEMA’s low-ball offers.  It has taken us nearly five years fighting tooth and nail to get paid – do you trust FEMA to decide the right amount to pay you behind closed doors?

This unfair change in policy might have something to do with the fact that FEMA is nervous about not getting reauthorized by Congress in September, but this should not be our problem.  If you still are waiting to have your claim argued in front of a judge you should let your Congressmen and Senators know right away that they need to do everything they can to protect your right to a fair hearing in front of a neutral judge.

 

WE URGE YOU TO CALL, EMAIL AND TWEET  ALL THE CONGRESSMEN AND SENATORS ON THE LIST BELOW.  TELL THEM;

“I AM A FLOOD SURVIVOR STILL WAITING TO GET PAID ON MY CLAIM” AND TO “KEEP THE NEUTRAL THIRD PARTY JUDGES IN PLACE.  WE DEMAND DUE PROCESS”

 

CALL, EMAIL, FAX AND TWEET NOW and until you receive your claim check!
