For residents who have seen homes and lives ravaged by Superstorm Sandy, the Riverhead Free Library will host a FEMA information source, beginning on Wednesday afternoon through Nov. 30.
Representatives will be on hand in the Library to answer inquiries and handle registrations for victims of Superstorm Sandy.
Hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., except Thanksgiving Day, Saturday 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., Sunday 1 p.m. to 4:45 p.m.
The information source will be located in a meeting room on the Library's lower level, opposite the elevator.
Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone's office has said in past weeks that residents applying for FEMA relief should have a pen and paper, and the following information ready:
- Social Security number
- Current and pre-disaster address
- A telephone number where you can be contacted
- Insurance information
- Total household annual income
- A routing and account number from your bank (only necessary if you want to have disaster assistance funds transferred directly into your bank account). A bank routing number is located on the lower left side of your bank checks immediately before your account number.
- A description of your losses that were caused by the disaster.
Once an individual has been given an application number, it should be written down and saved for future reference.
