OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John D. Doak has announced plans to hold a consumer assistance event for tornado survivors with unresolved insurance issues. The forum will take place in the lecture hall at Westmoore High School, 12613 S. Western Ave., Oklahoma City, on June 3 at 6:00 p.m.
“While a majority of those affected by last year’s storms have settled their insurance claims, some are still in limbo,” said Doak. “Those claims not settled by now are some of the most difficult to resolve. We promised to be here until the last claim was settled and we will honor that commitment. I encourage anyone with unresolved insurance issues to come to this forum and request our assistance. We will do anything in our power to get their claim resolved so they can move on with their lives.”
Tornado survivors have filed nearly 100,000 insurance claims since last year’s tornado outbreak, with insurance payments topping $1.1 billion.
Representatives from the Oklahoma Insurance Department’s Consumer Assistance, Legal, Anti-Fraud and Medicare Assistance divisions will be available to answer questions at the event.
Survivors who are not able to attend the forum in person are encouraged to call 1-800-522-0071 for help with insurance claims.
