Here’s How To Get Money Back For Spoiled Food/Meds From Isaias
When Tropical Storm Isaias hit, did you lose a fridge full of food? Did your medicine spoil?
If that is the case, then there is a way that you can possibly get your money back.
PSE&G has announced that they will reimburse residential customers up to $250 for spoiled groceries and up to $300 for spoiled medicines from the storm.
“We recognize that losing power in August, together with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, was a hardship for many of our customers,” said PSE&G president Dave Daly. “Given the unique combination of circumstances, we believe the right thing to do is to expand our claims process to ease the burden on the customers most impacted by Tropical Storm Isaias.”
There are a few requirements that you need to meet to be eligible for the money.
1. You must have been without power for at least 72 hours following the storm.
If you are filing a claim for lost food that cost less than $150, you will need a n itemized list of the destroyed food.
For food claims filed that cost between $150 and $250, you will need to show, "proof of loss which can include receipts, credit card statements or photographs," of the food that has gone bad.
For medication claims, you can be reimbursed up to $300 and you must provide an, "itemized list of lost items and proof of loss which can include a prescription label or a receipt that identifies the medication."
Commercial customers may be eligible to be reimbursed up to $5,000 but like everyone other situation listed above, they will need to, "provide an itemized list and proof of loss, like an invoice or a bank statement."
Are you elligible for this reimbursement? Great!
