OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahomans affected by the May tornado outbreak have another opportunity to receive assistance with insurance-related concerns during a consumer forum Oct. 14 in Moore. The forum will take place at 6:30 p.m. in Room A of the Moore Public Library, 225 S. Howard Ave.
“We remain committed to Oklahomans impacted by the devastating tornadoes this past spring and will continue to reach out and provide assistance for as long as it takes,” said Doak. “The road to recovery is a long one and we have not reached the end of it. But, we will be with these survivors every step of the way.”
Experts from the Oklahoma Insurance Department will discuss various topics including: how to file a claim, what to do if your claim is denied, how to file a complaint and how to spot fraud. Consumers will also be able to ask questions about individual insurance concerns. The forum is being co-hosted by the Moore Public Library, which requests that attendees register in advance by calling (405) 793-4349 or visiting http://www.pioneer.lib.ok.us/home/mootop/91-AMoo/5320-moore-hosts-oklahoma-insurance-department-panel-to-talk-post-storm-options.
Tornado survivors have filed nearly 100,000 insurance claims since May 19th, totaling more than $1.1 billion dollars in payments. The Oklahoma Insurance Department has held multiple outreach events to assist survivors with insurance issues. Those who are not able to attend the Oct. 14 forum in person are encouraged to call 1-800-522-0071 for help with insurance claims.
