Florida Peninsula and Edison Insurance Companies, two of Florida’s largest homeowners’ insurers, are working around the clock to address insurance claims resulting from Hurricane Ian.
Policyholders who have experienced storm-related damage should contact Florida Peninsula right away at 866-549-9672 or www.floridapeninsula.com/claims. Edison Insurance customers with claims can call 888-683-7971 or visit www.edisoninsurance.com/claims.
It is best for policyholders with storm damage to contact the insurance company first to receive prompt claims resolution by arranging to have an insurance adjuster inspect and document the damage. The adjuster can also help bring in the necessary resources to make needed repairs and ensure the continued safety and well-being of families and property.
Florida Peninsula and Edison will be participating in the Florida Department of Financial Services’ Insurance Village to better serve our customers. DFS has established two insurance villages, one at the Port Charlotte Mall and one at the JetBlue Park in Fort Myers. The villages are scheduled to open on Monday, October 3, 2022, at 1pm.
You can be confident that we are here to help all customers recover quickly from Hurricane Ian. Storm victims should be wary of any third party (contractor, public adjuster or even an attorney) with contracts in hand promising to make repairs or represent your interest. We urge homeowners to first speak to their insurance company or trusted insurance agent.
As Floridians begin the rebuilding process, Florida Peninsula and Edison offer the following safety tips and information:
• Avoid downed power lines, sharp objects, and dangerous debris. They are the most common culprits for injury.
• Prior to cleanup, take photos or video of damages to expedite the claims process. Please notify us of damage as soon as possible.
• If safe to do so, make temporary repairs to your home to prevent further damage.
• When beginning the cleanup process, practice caution, and wear protective clothing, gloves, and eyewear.
• For those who still have no power, carbon monoxide poisoning from generators poses a severe danger after the storm. Be sure portable generators are kept outside, at least 20 feet away from doors and windows.
• Avoid using candles, lighters, or matches. Open flames could ignite if there is a gas or propane leak. Use flashlights and battery-operated light sources instead.
Our number one priority is the safety and well-being of the families we insure. Florida Peninsula and Edison provide homeowners with coverage-rich policies, as well as offering flood protection and partnering with independent agents throughout the state who can ensure policyholders have the coverage they need.
