PANAMA CITY, Fla. — Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis hosted a Hurricane Michael Insurance Village today at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City. The event, which continues tomorrow, Saturday, August 17 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. CDT, is an opportunity for Panhandle residents having insurance issues to meet with their insurance company in person to work towards settling their claim.

CFO Jimmy Patronis said, "Ten months ago, the Florida Panhandle was changed forever by Hurricane Michael. While these communities are working every day to recover, there are still more than 20,000 insurance claims that remain open. Just as I did immediately following the storm, I asked insurance companies to step up and meet with their policyholders face-to-face and make them whole again.
"Today, we assisted over 140 consumers with their insurance claims, and companies have issued checks totaling more than $631,000 on site. If you are still having an insurance issue, please visit my Insurance Village this Saturday or call my helpline at 1-877-MY-FL-CFO for free assistance."
