AUSTIN – As the anniversary of Hurricane Harvey approaches, remember that some insurance policies have a one-year deadline to file claims.
Harvey made landfall August 25. Texas Windstorm Insurance Association (TWIA) claims must be reported by the one-year anniversary of the date the damage occurred unless the policyholder can show good cause for the delay.
To file a TWIA claim, go to www.twia.org or call 1-800-788-8247.
Some other insurance policies also have a one-year deadline to file claims. To see if your other policies have claim deadlines, check the policy language or contact your insurance company or agent.
