Foundation contributes $50,000 to American Red Cross for Hurricane Matthew Relief

NEW YORK, Oct. 13, 2016 – Assurant’s claims teams are responding to extensive homeowners and flood insurance claims from Florida to Virginia in the wake of Hurricane Matthew. 

The Assurant First Response Team is giving priority handling to claims and inquiries from areas impacted by Hurricane Matthew, with an emphasis on property and flood insurance policies. Toll-free numbers are operational for customers to report hurricane-related claims and make inquiries. Customers should contact the appropriate company for their policy: 

American Security Insurance Company

Standard Guaranty Insurance Company

American Bankers Insurance Company of Florida
Property Claims | 800.358.0600

“Our teams are working diligently to assist customers whose property has been damaged by the hurricane,” said Assurant President and CEO Alan Colberg. “At the same time, we know there are needs beyond those covered by insurance, so we’re looking at other ways we can help to provide resources and relief.” 

The Assurant Foundation, the charitable arm of Assurant, Inc. (NYSE: AIZ), today announced a $50,000 contribution to the American Red Cross for its Hurricane Matthew relief efforts. The Assurant Foundation also will match 2-for-1 all Assurant employee contributions made to the American Red Cross in October.  

“We salute the work of the American Red Cross to help those recovering from the hurricane, and we’re committed to playing a part in supporting their efforts,” Colberg said.

The Assurant Foundation made a similar contribution to the Red Cross’ relief efforts in August, following devastating flooding in Louisiana.
