WINK News consumer reporter Andryanna Sheppard spoke with Florida CFO Jimmy Patronis about insurance issues that arise now that Hurricane Ian has passed.

In Port Charlotte, an insurance village is set up so you can talk face-to-face with a claims expert and even start a claim at the Port Charlotte Town Center.

All the national insurance companies and about 20 of our local FL insurance companies will be there to help you navigate insurance claims for damage to your home and other possessions.

State Attorney Amira Fox has also activated its Hurricane Ian Response Team to help people who may become victims of insurance fraud.

The State Attorney’s Office says if you believe you have fallen victim to insurance fraud or are the victim of an unlicensed contractor, you can call them at 1-239-533-1342.

They ask that you leave a detailed message with your complaint as well as contact information so you can be reached for additional information and investigation support as needed.
