What Happens if You’re Denied by the Gulf Coast Claims Facility?
For a lot of people they dreaded the day that they would receive the letter showing that they were declined for their assistance and emergency aid by the Gulf Coast Claims Facility. Yes, it did happen, and there were a lot of people that were denied their claim and had nowhere to go and no one to turn to. However, for people that were denied by the Gulf Coast Claim Facility, they do have options and they do have other organizations that they can turn to. People don’t have to struggle on their own, especially in the face of a disaster like this; there are things that can be done.
For people that were denied, the first thing that they can do is file an appeal. If they truly believe that they are entitled to funds from the Gulf Coast Claim Facility gather paperwork and write a letter of appeal, it may help. At this point, hiring an attorney may be the right thing to do because it will help them get their facts across and make sure that they have someone that is fighting in their corner. Sometimes, as an individual, there is only so much that you can do.
Otherwise, if your claim with the Gulf Coast Claim Facility is a wash, there are other places that you can look for aid. The easiest place to start is probably your state assistance office, see if you can qualify for any state aid programs. There are programs like unemployment that will help you get money if you are out of work, and it will last for many weeks. You also can apply for aid for help with insurance, which would be Medicaid, or see if you can get your children on state sponsored and funded insurance programs. You should also look into state assistance for food such as food stamps and other programs like that where you may be able to qualify in lieu of your recent situation.
Even though the Gulf Coast Claims Facility may decline you, there are other places that you can go to get done what you need. Knowing what other options are available for you will help you figure out what other choices that you may have and where you can look. There are a lot of great state programs that were created to help people that are in bad situations, know what those are and how they can help you.
