Press Releases

To help accelerate Hurricane Irma recovery efforts across Florida, CFO Patronis today announced an extension of continuing education deadlines for licensed insurance professionals in Florida. Continuing education deadlines are set by the licensee’s birthday month, and any licensee with a deadline in September, October, or November will now have an extended deadline of December 31, 2017, to complete their continuing education requirements.
Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis today warned Floridians of scammers looking to take advantage of those impacted by Hurricane Irma. Floridians should be vigilant in verifying the identity of those claiming to represent government and relief agencies, and should ask questions to fully understand all contracts with insurance and repair companies.
This week, on Wednesday, September 20 and Thursday, September 21, CFO Jimmy Patronis and Senator Marco Rubio will co-host on-site insurance villages and comprehensive disaster recovery centers in Naples and Lehigh Acres in Southwest Florida. Local, state, and federal partners, including FEMA, will be in attendance to offer Floridians a wide array of relief assistance in one centralized location.
