Virgin Islands Legislature on St. Thomas

St. Thomas residents who have been unable to register online for FEMA disaster assistance can do so in person at the Legislative building, Senate President Myron D. Jackson said in a news release Wednesday.

They can meet with representatives of the Federal Emergency Management Agency from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. . Monday and Tuesday to meet with representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to register and check the status of their applications for disaster assistance.

Jackson’s news release urged members of the public to bring several pieces of information to facilitate the application process, including their Social Security number, address of the damaged home or apartment, information about insurance coverage, telephone number, mailing address, bank account and routing numbers for those who choose to receive direct deposit of funds, and proof of ownership for the damaged property.

Jackson said he hopes that the people of the territory will take advantage of the opportunity to interface directly with FEMA representatives who will walk them through the registration process and respond to questions about their needs for assistance.
