The Hurricane Ian Insurance Villages operated from Jan. 23 to 28 and provided opportunities for local area residents having insurance issues to meet directly with their insurance company and work together to resolve outstanding claims.

Immediately following Hurricane Ian, DFS deployed two Initial Payment Centers in Fort Myers and Port Charlotte. Between those two Initial Payment Centers in Lee and Charlotte counties, 34 insurance carriers participated and assisted more than 40,000 policyholders with initial storm claims.
