Texas Windstorm Insurance Pool’s Mobile Claim Office Closing Nov. 5

The Texas Windstorm Insurance Association (TWIA) reported that adjusters have now made contact with all policyholders except those who have recently reported claims. As a result TWIA will close its mobile catastrophe claim office in LaMarque, Texas, on Nov. 5, 2008, at 4:00 p.m.

For those who have not filed their claim with TWIA or have filed their claim and are seeking financial assistance, TWIA recommends they call the toll-free number 1-800-788-8247.

If policyholders have been contacted by and/or visited with an adjuster they do not need to call the 800 number. Rather, they should work through their adjuster to get the help they need.

TWIA has received over 85,000 claims from policyholders. All of these claims have been assigned to adjusters. The association says it is continuing to work diligently to assist policyholders and pay for damages that are covered under its policies.
