Department of Financial Services Reps Stationed On Emmons Ave Today


Having insurance-related issues? (Of course you are.) Well, the Department of Financial Services, the state agency responsible for regulating the insurance industry and advocating for New York’s residents, has set up a mobile command unit on Emmons Avenue.

The representatives will be available to meet with residents inside the agency’s Mobile Command Center at Emmons Avenue and Nostrand Avenue from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Department representatives will help neighbors contact their insurers if they have been unable to do so and answer questions about homeowners’, renters’ and business owners’ insurance coverage.

Citizens unable to go to the Mobile Command Center are encouraged to call the Department’s storm hotline¬†(800) 339-1759,¬†which is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Insurance information is also available on the Department’s website.

Thanks to the offices of Assemblywoman Helene Weinstein and State Senator Marty Golden, who informed us about the services today.
