CFO Jimmy Patronis' Hurricane Michael Insurance Village  Assists Consumers with Over $1.4 Million in Claims

PANAMA CITY, Fla. — Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis hosted a Hurricane Michael Insurance Village at Florida State University Panama City on October 11 and 12. The event provided an opportunity for Panhandle residents having insurance issues to meet with their insurance company in person to work towards settling their claim.

CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “One year ago, the Florida Panhandle was changed forever by Hurricane Michael. Unfortunately, the recovery has been hampered by the more than 17,000 outstanding insurance claims left open a full year after the storm. This weekend, my Consumer Services Team hosted 30 insurance companies at our Hurricane Michael Insurance Village in Panama City where an estimated $1,451,815 in claims payments have been made to consumers after meeting with their insurance company in person.
 
"While this is great progress in paying out remaining claims, it's past time insurance companies step up for the consumers who pay their premiums faithfully month after month. If you’re still having issues with claims, please call my helpline today at 1-877-MY-FL-CFO for free assistance.”
