INSURANCE HELP AVAILABLE FOR HOMEOWNERS HIT BY ANDREW

 INSURANCE HELP AVAILABLE FOR HOMEOWNERS HIT BY ANDREW
 NEW YORK, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Homeowners whose property was


damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Andrew can get answers to their insurance questions, says the Insurance Information Institute (I.I.I.)
 "Homeowners should contact their insurance agent, broker or company representative and ask he/she to help them with their insurance questions," said Dr. Sean Mooney, I.I.I.'s economist and senior vice president.
 "Many insurance companies have toll-free numbers and other services to help their policyholders who were victims of Hurricane Andrew," Mooney added. "Homeowners should try to listen to the radio, read their local newspaper and ask friends about these special services."
 The Florida Department of Insurance also has toll-free service, 1-800-528-7094, to help consumers with their insurance questions. It is available seven days from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
 To provide basic insurance information to consumers throughout the country, the insurance industry operates a toll-free information service called the National Insurance Consumer Helpline (NICH). The Helpline offers answers to simple but important questions such as "what is a deductible" or "what does renters insurance cover." The Helpline also provides a wide-range of consumer-oriented brochures and materials. It can be reached 1-800-942-4242 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (EDT) Monday through Friday.
