Info from FEMA on Protecting Yourself from Identity Theft

Steps for Survivors Who May Be Victims of Identity Theft:
  • If a FEMA Inspector comes to your home and you did not submit a FEMA application, your information may have been used without your knowledge to create a FEMA application; if so, please inform the inspector that you did not apply for FEMA assistance so that they can submit a request to stop all further processing on the application.
  • If you did not apply for assistance, but receive a letter from FEMA, please call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362. The helpline will submit a request to stop any further processing of that application.
  • If you do wish to apply for FEMA assistance after stopping an application made in your name without your knowledge, the Helpline will need to assist you in creating a new application.
  • A fraudulent application could be a sign of identity theft. For information on what to do if you suspect identity theft, please visit identitytheft.gov/
