Resources for Senior Hurricane Sandy Victims

FEMA info for seniorsWinter 2013- Hurricane Sandy caused tremendous damage to our beautiful town of Belmar, New Jersey. As we work together to restore our community, it’s important to know where you can turn for help.

FEMA is a great source of information and assistance for storm victims. If you are a senior citizen, be sure to check out this FEMA announcement for New Jersey residents. According to the release, New Jersey seniors don't have to worry about receiving disaster funds. FEMA disaster assistance is not counted as income and is not taxable, so accepting it will not impact your Social Security or any other government benefits you currently receive.

Once you have your disaster assistance funds in order, it's time to start tackling repairs. However, scammers and con artists often target seniors and disaster victims, so it’s very important to find reputable contractors to assist you. FEMA's article on Hurricane Sandy rumor control is a good place to start, with tips for avoiding scams. You may also want to head over to our Clients Helping Clients page.
