Governor Christie extended FEMA Individual Assistance to all 21 Counties in New Jersey today. This makes a big difference if, like me, you suffered property damage and were told by FEMA initially that we weren’t in the “Declared” areas.
If you registered and completed a claim prior to today, find your claim number and call FEMA at 1-800-621-FEMA again. Don’t just check the status on their website; talk to a person. Ask what the status is now that we’re all in “Declared” areas. You may be on hold for a long time, but tough it out and find out where you stand with FEMA assistance.
