As the anniversary of Hurricane Harvey approaches, the Texas Department of Insurance is reminding Texans that some insurance policies have a one-year deadline to file claims.
Harvey made landfall August 25. Texas Windstorm Insurance Association (TWIA) claims must be reported by the one-year anniversary of the date the damage occurred unless the policyholder can show good cause for the delay.
To file a TWIA claim, go to www.twia.org or call 1-800-788-8247.
Some other insurance policies also have a one-year deadline to file claims unless the policyholder can show good cause for the delay. To see if your other policies have claim deadlines, check the policy language or contact your insurance company or agent.
