Insurance Agents Doing Their Part After Flood

SC Focus logo

  Insurance agents have been in great demand since the recent floods that swept the state. Agent Courtney Young has been busy representing her clients with the insurance companies. She tells us that while most people in the Midlands don’t have flood insurance, FEMA can step in to help those without flood coverage. She reminds policyholders to make sure they have plenty of documentation with their claims – photos of the damage, receipts if they’ve already started repairs - and to keep large items for insurance adjusters to inspect, even if they’ve been removed from the house. She says if you need help, call your local agents – they work for you.
