Toms River Sandy Victims Get Insurance Help

Under the direction of the Christie Administration, the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance (DOBI) will host a mobile office in Toms River on Aug. 12.  Officials will be on hand to answer questions about the DOBI’s mediation program, and assist in filing insurance claims related to damages caused by Superstorm Sandy.

The mediation program allows property owners to submit unresolved automobile and commercial property claims to an independent mediator who will review the case and help in settlement discussions free of charge.

Almost all of the non-flood insurance claims related to Superstorm Sandy in New Jersey have been closed, but there are still more than 17,000 claims yet to be settled. Ocean County has the largest number of unsettled non-flood, Sandy-related claims with 4,020.  In Toms River, there are 614 non-flood Sandy-related claims that have not been closed.

The Sandy Mediation Program doesn’t currently include flood claims which are administered by the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), but New Jersey has offered an open invitation to the NFIP to include disputed claims in the mediation program.

The Mobile Office will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at 33 Washington Street. Residents should bring their insurance policy and any claim information with them.
