TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis issued the following statement applauding Citizens Property Insurance Corporation for providing needed relief to more than 445,000 policyholders statewide during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many in our communities are reeling from the economic impacts of this pandemic and we must do everything we can to provide relief to Florida families and protect consumers as we weather this storm. I thank CEO Barry Gilway and the Citizens team for stepping up for their customers.”
 
Citizens CEO and Executive Director Barry Gilway said, “We understand the circumstances many of our policyholders may be going through in light of COVID-19 and are doing what we can to help them get through this unprecedented event."
