I thought it would be a good idea to share any special help options we hear about in a thread.

I got the following email from Chase Bank:

Quote:
We know many of you are still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, and unfortunately, may be for some time. I want to update you on how Chase can help with some of these challenges. Here are some solutions you can talk to us about.


•Quickly replacing your credit or debit cards that are lost, damaged or not accessible.


•Working through options if you are unable to make a payment on your credit card or business, car, home or student loan.


•Increasing the credit line on your Chase credit card account.


•Increasing the amount you can deposit with your smartphone through Chase QuickDepositSM*.


º Special note - Chase QuickDeposit will be unavailable Saturday,
November 10 from 9 PM ET, until around 11 AM ET on Sunday
due to scheduled maintenance.


•Making loans to small and mid-sized businesses impacted by the storm as part of a $5 billion lending commitment. Stop by a branch or call your banker.


Just call our Special Care Line for customers affected by the storm at 1-888-356-0023 or tweet @ChaseSupport.

Default After Hurricane Sandy: New Yorkers Be Alert for Red Flags of Fraud

Long Island News - After Hurricane Sandy: New Yorkers Be Alert for Red Flags of Fraud | Long Island Exchange

Quote:
Most home contractors are honest, but history shows us that crooked contractors almost always show up at disaster areas to offer low-priced, fraudulent repairs. These are often unlicensed storm-chasers, going door-to-door in search of victims.

Homeowners should keep in mind that insurance policies may not cover fraudulent repairs.

Default 30-Day Moratorium on Insurance Companies Cancelling Policies

Long Island News - Governor Cuomo Changes Insurance Rules So New Yorkers Can Quickly Document Damage and Discard Dangerous Debris Without Affecting Insurance Claims | Long Island Exchange

Quote:
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that, at his direction, Financial Services Superintendent Benjamin M. Lawsky has instructed insurers to accept homeowners’ documentation, including photos and video, of losses so residents can discard debris before a second storm hits the region. Typically, insurance companies require an on-site inspection first before a claim can be processed. In addition, the State has imposed a 30-day moratorium on cancelling or terminating homeowners’ and small business owners’ insurance policies in storm stricken areas for any reason, including non-payment of premiums.
