DFS Plans Hurricane Ian Insurance Villages in Southwest Florida

The Department of Financial Services will host three Insurance Villages from January 23-28 in Punta Gorda, Englewood and Fort Myers

The towns will serve as an opportunity for policyholders to meet in person with their property insurer and work together to resolve outstanding claims.

Representatives from the National Flood Insurance Program and more than a dozen insurers are expected to be available to assist insurance consumers.

The insured should bring all the documentation they can, including:

  • A driver’s license or other form of identification, such as a passport or state-issued ID.
  • Insurance cards and insurance policy information or documentation
  • Photographs or documentation of property claimed as a loss resulting from Hurricane Ian
  • repair estimates
  • And any additional information related to insurance that is easily accessible.

Due to space limitations, the insurance villages will focus exclusively on insurance related issues and staff from other agencies will not be present to assist with other post-storm benefits.
The insurance villas will be in Punta Gorda on Monday and Tuesday at the Charlotte County Events Center, 75 Taylor Street; In Englewood on Wednesday at Tringali Meeting Hall, 3450 N. Access Road; and in Fort Myers on Friday and Saturday at Florida Southwestern State College, 8099 College Parkway, room A177.

There will be no event on Thursday.

All insurance villages will be open from 9 am to 6 pm For more information, visit
