Hurricane Isaac survivors: Keep your receipts

JACKSON, MS (WLOX) -

Hurricane Isaac survivors who received money from FEMA must keep the receipts or bills for which the money was used for three years.

FEMA assistance must be used for eligible disaster expenses only, as identified in the approval letter from the agency. You must save documentation that demonstrates how the funds were used in meeting your disaster-related needs. Examples include:

  • Receipts for items purchased for home repair.
  • Contractor invoices.
  • Proof of hotel room charges if you received housing assistance.
  • Rent payment receipts if you received housing assistance.
  • Receipts for moving and storage expenses.
  • Receipts for repairing or replacing personal property.

More information on FEMA programs for individuals and households can be found in the "Help After a Disaster" guide. The guide was mailed to each applicant but also is available online at fema.gov/help-after-disaster.
