An article in the Insurance Journal reports that Citizens Property Insurance Corp. has reopened about 37 percent of its Hurricane Irma claims, according to a statement from the Florida insurer of last resort.

“Facing a shortage of contractors, which has led to delays in repairs, especially in the [Florida] Keys, some of our policyholders in the region feel abandoned and on their own – a dangerous combination that can lead to litigation and further delays,” said Citizens President and CEO Barry Gilway at the insurer’s April 11 Board of Governors meeting.

As of March 28, Citizens said more than 24,500 of 66,400 Irma claims, about 37 percent, have been reopened for supplemental payment and to allow policyholders or their representatives to provide additional information related to their claim.
