The state is setting up some mobile offices tomorrow in Ocean, Monmouth, and Middlesex Counties to help New Jersey residents deal with their Hurricane Sandy insurance concerns.

Governor Christie says high-level staff from the Department of Banking and Insurance will be at those mobile sites from 9am until 5pm in Bayville, Oakhurst, and Sayerville.

“The idea here is to get into the communities that have been most devastated by the storm as they now go into the next phase of this which is collecting on insurance, having their claims handled, and getting their businesses back up to speed by having access to capital.” 

Residents are urged to bring their insurance policy and claim information.

If the one-day outreach program goes well, Christie says it might be expanded to the Department of Community Affairs to help with municipal issues and permitting problems related to the storm.
