Maximizing Your FEMA Claim

Other options for helping businesses and individuals rebuild after a significant disaster may be available through other sources than an insurance company. Sill is equipped to aid with the process of identifying additional avenues for assistance specifically provided through FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

FEMA, a unit of the Department of Homeland Security, is the lead organization chartered to provide an orderly and systemic means of federal natural disaster assistance for state and local governments in carrying out their responsibilities to aid citizens. The mandate includes offering federal assistance programs for losses caused by a disaster.

Alex N. Sill Company recognizes the need to help clients attain resources beyond those typically available through insurance proceeds. As such, Sill has joined with DCMC Partners, a recognized industry leader in public safety and crisis management consulting, to provide high level value-added services designed to help clients with their own emergency preparedness planning as well as responding to and recovering from disasters of all kinds.
