If denied FEMA assistance, follow these steps:
- Read the letter carefully. There will be a reason for denial stated in the letter and normally, what the individual has to do to correct any problems
- Take the letter to the nearest Disaster Response Center, let the staff know you are registered and that you need assistance in correcting a problem with your request
- At this stage, a lot of denials are because the individual either hasn't had time to get their insurance policy copy to FEMA or haven't gotten other insurance documentation (settlement statement) to FEMA
- Individuals may also attempt to resolve the problem by calling 1-800-621-3362 or at www.disasterassistance.gov.
