Now that winter is truly underway across the nation, dairy farmers in cold and snowy regions across the United States are hitting their most financially difficult time of year. As feed and heating costs increase, some farmers may be looking back to their still-unresolved insurance claims from flooding earlier in the year and wishing they could get that resolution now, when it matters most. But their claims have been delayed, and no one is returning their calls.
Delayed Flood Insurance Claims Leave Dairy Farmers Feeling Helpless—Even Months Later
Unfortunately, insurance companies make money by delaying claims, especially when many hundreds or thousands of people have been affected in the event. For dairy farmers, who depend on the health of their livestock and regular production for survival, the idea of waiting for six months or more for payment of a flood insurance claim can be unthinkable. Insurance delays that drag on can threaten the long-term health of your farm and your agricultural business, and many farmers end up feeling helpless and hopeless when dealing with their flood insurance carrier. However, if you are feeling the winter crunch from an unresolved flood insurance claim, you should know that you can get help.
