Dear Fellow Floridians:
I recently attended the Florida TaxWatch 2019 Productivity Awards and accepted an award on behalf of the Department of Financial Services for response efforts related to Hurricane Michael.
Our preparation and readiness were tested again with the approach of Hurricane Dorian. Although Florida was spared a landfall by Dorian, our staff was prepared to put our boots on the ground wherever landfall occurred. Insurance Villages were planned to assist consumers with their insurance issues in strategic areas whatever path the storm took.
To date we have recovered over $27.2 million on behalf of Hurricane Michael victims. I couldn't be prouder of my DFS staff and their hard work for those impacted by Hurricane Michael.
