Disaster Unemployment Insurance Even if you don’t think you would qualify for regular unemployment, if you had plans to make money this month, there is a good chance you can quality for disaster unemployment. New Yorkers in any of the 5 boroughs qualify for federal disaster unemployment insurance if they had to miss work or lost income because of Hurricane Sandy. This is not like regular unemployment insurance. People who do not normally qualify, because they are self-employed like small business owners, freelancers, and independent taxi drivers are eligible to receive these benefits. Anyone unemployed due to Hurricane Sandy is immediately eligible and can submit a claim to the Department of Labor. An individual can collect disaster assistance in any of the following cases: • Injured in the disaster and unable to work, whether the person is an employee or self-employed. • Workplace is damaged, or destroyed, or the person cannot work because of the disaster. • Transportation to work is not available because of the disaster. • Cannot get to work because must travel through the affected area, which is impossible due to disaster. • Planned to begin working, but cannot because of the disaster. • Derived most of income from areas affected by the disaster, and business is closed or inoperable because of the disaster. To apply for unemployment benefits or disaster unemployment assistance, those affected by the storm and have lost their job or income should call the Telephone Claims Center (TCC) at 1-888-209-8124, or 1-877-358-5306 if they live out of state. Applicants should answer the questions to indicate they lost their job due to Hurricane Sandy. In order to receive benefits you must apply by December 3, 2012. Continue to certify weekly as long as you are not working. Do this every single week even if you have not started to receive your benefits yet. You can certify online by going to www.labor.ny.gov. Click on the “File for Benefits” link located halfway down the page on the right side and follow the instructions to log in. Of you can certify over the phone at 1-888-581-5812. You should have the following information ready and available when you file: • Your social security number • Your NYS driver license or Motor Vehicle ID card number (if you have one) • Your mailing address and zip code • A phone number where you can be reached for additional information • Your alien registration card number (if you have one) and • For those impacted by Hurricane Sandy, the names and addresses of all employers you worked for within the 18 months prior to October 30, 2012, including any in another state. (From http://www.governor.ny.gov/ press/11022012-federal-disaster-unemployment-assistance) 2

WHO QUALIFIES? Self Employed: YES Part-Time: YES Full-Time: YES Freelance: YES

If you can prove to Uncle Sam that without this disaster, you would have been able to make more money than you actually did, then you qualify for disaster unemployment relief. How are payments made? You may choose between direct deposit into your personal checking account or a Direct Payment Card. Register for Direct Deposit at www.labor.ny.gov by logging in to the “Unemployment Assistance” section of the website and clicking on the Direct Deposit link. You must have a check handy at that time to provide your bank routing number and checking account number. It will take approximately five business days between the date your account information is received and the date that your benefits can be electronically sent to your checking account. If you do not register for direct deposit, you will receive the Direct Payment Card, a debit MasterCard. It allows you to withdraw your benefits via an ATM and make purchases wherever MasterCard is accepted. The Direct Payment Card will be mailed to you about one week after you are approved to receive benefits.

IN ORDER TO RECEIVE BENEFITS YOU MUST APPLY BY 12/3/12.

NOTE that because DUA is Federally funded, an employer’s unemployment insurance taxes will not be impacted if the employer has employees who qualify for DUA.


staying WARM If you are staying in a house without heat, there are some simple things you can do to stay warm and safe. 1. Choose a small place to heat

Smaller spaces are easier to keep warm. Avoid rooms with lots of drafts. Ideally, choose a room with a door or make a door out of blankets and curtains. If the room has a bathroom connected, it will mean less entering and exiting, which can also help keep warm air in.

5. Wear lots of layers

Wearing many pieces of clothes on top of one another keeps you warmer than one big piece of clothing. Wearing a warm hat is essential, especially when sleeping. Just keep piling it on. Wool sweaters are particularly good - especially cabled sweaters (the ones with ridges - these help trap hot air).

6. Snuggle up

Try to keep close to other people, and let your body heat warm each other up. (Of course, communicate with your snuggle partners first - and make sure that you that they actually WANT to snuggle with you.)

7. STAY SOCIAL

During the day, open shades and curtains to let the sun in. This will warm your space considerably. Make sure to close these during the night to keep the heat in.

Being with people you like - old friends and new friends - can make an uncomfortable situation easier to deal with, and also means more bodies to keep each other warm. As much as disaster might make you feel isolated and alone, try to push yourself to stay around other people - this is important now more than ever!

3. Don’t let heat escape.

8. Burn Candles -- but nothing larger!!

2. Let sunshine in

Find everywhere where drafts are entering into your living space, and fill them however you can. Heavy curtains, shower curtains, blankets, tarps can all be used to cover drafty doors, passageways or windows. Saran Wrap, duct tape, or even spare clothes tucked under a door can also be helpful. Whatever works.

4. Insulate the floor.

Try to find something - extra blankets, dry rugs, tarps, even clean cardboard, to cover the floor of your living space.

The risk of fire is high after a natural disaster. Practice safety: place candles on something that can’t catch fire, like a metal pan, aluminum foil, or a plate. Never leave burning candles unattended, and blow them out when you go to sleep. warning: Burning a kerosene heater or running a generator indoors releases poisonous exhaust that can kill you especially if you’ve already sealed up all the places for air to escape.

9. Drink warm beverages

While it is dangerous to use your oven or stove as a heater in itself, if you have the means to do so, safely boil water and drink tea, coffee, or hot cocoa to keep warm.

10. Keep your sleeping area small

Try to create the smallest possible enclosed space for sleeping in. You can hang curtains around a bed or couch, or even set a tent up inside your living space. Be careful that you can easily get in and out of any sleeping space you make - and make sure there is nothing burning nearby (candles or other heat sources).

11.Make a heating pad

You can make a heating pad if you have some sort of oven or outdoor BBQ working. Heat up raw oats or rice in a pot (no water!) and then put them into a sock. (Use a scoop or funnel so you don’t burn yourself.) This will stay warm for a while, and can easily heat you up once the sun goes down. help the kids find the holiday feast!

USING A GAS OR ELECTRIC STOVE TO HEAT YOUR HOME IS DANGEROUS Why is using an electric stove for heating dangerous?

If you have a functioning electric range, you may be tempted to turn the oven and all the burners on to try and heat the house. But if left on too long, this can burn out the wiring and ruin the stove, and there’s also a risk of fire if the stove top heating elements are left on. Using the stove to bake some food, boil some water to drink, or for a hot water bottle, will help keep the house warm too, but never leave the stove unattended while it is on, and when everyone is asleep, the stove should be turned off.

Why is using a gas stove for heating dangerous?

It can be very dangerous to run a gas stove unattended, or for too long a time. Burning gas gives off carbon monoxide, which can kill, especially when it is trapped in an enclosed space. But that’s not the only danger: if for some reason the fire is blown out, this will result in deadly gas filling your space. Trapped gas is not only poisonous, it can catch on fire with the lighting of a match or cigarette or candle, or any kind of spark, and cause an explosion and a fireball. So please be careful while staying warm!

You Can Use EBT Without Electricity The Issue: No Electricity, No Food Stamps?

REQUIRED INFO FOR MANUAL VOUCHERS:

Without electricity, stores that would normally take SNAP via EBT (electronic benefits transfer) cards cannot process SNAP transactions using the standard method. In locations with no power, there are numerous reports of people being turned away from grocery stores and bodegas unless they can pay in cash.

1. Date and time of transaction 2. Store FNS number 3. Total purchase amount (be sure to not charge tax for hot or prepared foods) 4. Card number 5. Cardholder name 6. Cardholder signature 7. Clerk signature 8. Voucher Number: “Official” voucher forms are pre-printed with voucher numbers. If retailers must use copied vouchers or notebooks/ lists, they will have to create a voucher number for each transaction in order to get paid later. The number can be any 7-digit number other than “0000000”. Retailers may find it easiest to start with “0000001” and count up with every new transaction.

The Solution: Retailer Education

Many retailers may not know how to use manual vouchers. Or, they may know about the vouchers but are afraid that they will not receive payment. By providing instructions, forms, and information about recent emergency waivers from New York State, hopefully retailers will be willing to take the extratime to process manual vouchers and New Yorkers can stay well-fed, regardless of financial status. • Approach stores that (a) do not have power and (b) are authorized to accept SNAP. • Ask to speak with the store owner/manager. If the owner refuses manual vouchers, consider mentioning any of the following: • NYS just issued automatic SNAP replacement benefits to all SNAP households in declared disaster areas. This benefit is equivalent to 50% of each recipient’s monthly benefit. According to the NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance, all NYC SNAP recipients received their replacement benefits to their accounts on 11/7, and those outside NYC by the morning of 11/9. • NYS has authorized the use of SNAP to purchase hot and prepared foods through 11/30 in all disaster areas, which includes all 5 boroughs of NYC. These items, if purchased with SNAP, are tax-free through the end of the month. •Acknowledge that stores have been $$ losing profits $$ and that by processing manual vouchers stores can generate a significant income stream during relief efforts, especially considering the large proportion of New Yorkers who receive SNAP benefits. • If the owner still refuses, ask if you can at least leave the instructions and printed vouchers with him/her in case s/he changes her mind. [You can always follow-up again later.] The instructions require a transaction authorization number that has to be obtained via an automated telephone system—and the store does not have a working telephone. What now? • A manual transaction can be done, but if no authorization number is obtained at the time of purchase, the store would not be reimbursed if the account does not have sufficient funds to cover the transaction. • Authorization # can be obtained after a transaction when phone service is again available. 1-800-350-8533 ( J.P. Morgan) • The call is to a toll-free number and can be made from any phone as long as the required information is available at the time of the call. • With the mass issuance of SNAP benefits, most New Yorkers currently have funds in their SNAP accounts.

Do stores have to use the official voucher form? • NO. According to JP Morgan, the third party EBT processor, the only requirement is that stores capture the information required. Using the voucher form is merely a convenience. • STORES CAN MAKE COPIES OF THE VOUCHER FORM, MAKE THEIR OWN SLIPS OF PAPER, OR MAINTAIN A NOTEBOOK OF SNAP MANUAL VOUCHER TRANSACTIONS THAT INCLUDES ALL REQUIRED INFORMATION (see above). • How will stores get paid for these transactions? The retailer will have to enter the information into the system once it is up and running once again. Authorization numbers obtained via telephone place a hold on the EBT account being used. Retailers in NY have 30 calendar days to either enter the manual voucher on the EBT system once power returns, or to mail the vouchers (and keep copies!) to: J.P. Morgan Retail and Field Support P.O. Box 30078 Tampa, FL 33630-3078 Where can stores find more information? •www.ebtretailerinfo.jpmorgan.com •Retailer General Information Number: 1-800-350-8533 ( J.P. Morgan)

FEMA’s Individuals and Households Program Renters and homeowners can borrow up to $40,000 for repairs and to replace things like appliances, furniture, automobiles, and clothing. People who own homes can apply for as much as $200,000 for repairs to their primary residences. Apply Online at DisasterAssistance.gov, via a smartphone at m.fema.gov; or by phone by calling (800) 621-3362 or TTY (800) 462-7585. When you apply, you should have a pen and paper and the following information ready: • Your 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 description of your losses that were caused by the disaster

After you’ve completed your application for assistance, you will receive a FEMA application number. Write down this number and keep it for future reference This program has two provisions of assistance for “Housing Needs” and “Other than Housing Needs,” which are available to individuals and families whose property has been damaged or destroyed as a result of a federally-declared disaster, and whose losses are not covered by insurance.

Housing Needs

• Temporary Housing (a place to live for a limited period of time) • Repair: Financial assistance may be available to homeowners to repair damage that is not covered by insurance, so long as it is a primary residence. • Replacement: Financial assistance may be available to homeowners to replace their home destroyed in the disaster, if it is not covered by insurance.

Do I Qualify?

To receive money or help under this category, all of the following must be true: • You have losses in an area that has been declared a disaster by the President. • You have filed for insurance benefits and the damage to your property is not covered by your insurance or your insurance settlement is insufficient to meet your losses. • You or someone who lives with you is a citizen of the United States, a non-citizen national, or a qualified alien. • You have a valid Social Security Number. • The home in the disaster area is where you usually live and where you were living at the time of the disaster. • You are not able to live in your home now, you cannot get to your home due to the disaster, or your home requires repairs because of damage from the disaster.

Other than Housing Needs

Money is available for necessary expenses and serious needs caused by the disaster. This includes: • Disaster-related medical and dental expenses. • Disaster-related funeral and burial expenses. • Clothing; household items (room furnishings, appliances); tools (specialized or protective clothing and equipment) required for your job; necessary educational materials (computers, school books, supplies). • Fuels for primary heat source (heating oil, gas). • Clean-up items (wet/dry vacuum, dehumidifier). • Disaster-related damage to a vehicle. • Moving and storage expenses related to the disaster (moving and storing property to avoid additional disaster damage while disaster-related repairs are being made to the home). • Other necessary expenses or serious needs as determined by FEMA. • Other expenses that are authorized by law.

IS THE WATER SAFE TO DRINK?

SEND UNNEEDED CLOTHES

In NYC, tap water is safe to drink in all areas except Breezy Point. The city cautions that water in Breezy Point will not be drinkable even if boiled. This is specific to Breezy Point; residents there will have to drink bottled water once the water returns. Water is being provided by the Department of Environmental Protection at portable water stations in Breezy Point. Water is being restored, where it can, in Breezy Point for the express purpose of firefighting and fire suppression. Breezy Point uses the city’s water, which is safe, but its distribution system is privately owned and managed. Breaks in that distribution system are what’s making the water unsafe.

DEMO, CLEANUP, WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE YOU CLEAN UP! Construction and rebuilding: Demonstrating losses. For more complete info visit http://advocate.nyc.gov/storm It may be tempting to immediately get rid of everything which has been damaged in the storm please don’t. It is important that you document all damage with photos or video and don’t throw anything away before an adjuster has seen it. If needed, move the damaged items outside. For claims under homeowners’ insurance, if dwelling debris must be removed before the adjuster is able to examine it. HOMEOWNERS SHOULD: 1. Inventory all the damaged items. 2. Take individual color photos of the damaged property, targeting any high ticket items. If possible, videotape the damage items. 3. Have the camera set to record the date / time. 4. If possible, take samples or swatches of carpeting, wallpaper, furniture upholstery, window treatments, and other items where quality will be a claims factor. 5. The inventory should reflect the corresponding picture for validation. 6. Keep this information in a secured location to share when the adjuster arrives.

NYC Rapid Repairs: Homeowners will be able to start calling 311 or going to NYC. gov on Tuesday to get contractors out to their damaged homes.

***Photographically document the damage for FEMA and insurance claims before anyone touches it.****

FIGHT BACK AGAINST ILLEGAL EVICTIONS!

It’s against the law for your landlord to lock you out! (even if you owe rent, & even if the house is in foreclosure) If you have lived in an apartment, SRO, room, or adult home for more than thirty (30) days, a landlord cannot force you to move without taking you to court, even if you owe rent, and even if the building or house is in foreclosure. The landlord has to get an order from the judge before she or he can force you to move. And only a Marshall with a court order can actually move your belongings. If the landlord changes the locks on your door, removes your possessions, or turns off electrical or other essential services in an attempt to force you to move out, you can file an illegal lockout case in housing court. The Police are required to assist you to enforce your rights. Illegal eviction is a crime!

safe flood clean-up What to do 1

Check and document the Damage Before you start cleaning: Carefully check for loose power lines and gas leaks. If there is standing water next to the outside walls of your home, don’t go in. REMEMBER to document all damage before cleaning for fema aid and insurance claims to “demonstrate losses” For more complete info visit http://advocate.nyc.gov/storm. It may be tempting to immediately get rid of everything which has been damaged in the storm please don’t. It is important that you document all damage with photos or video and don’t throw anything away before an adjuster has seen it. If needed, move the damaged items outside. For claims under homeowners’ insurance, if dwelling debris must be removed before the adjuster is able to examine it. homeowners should: 1. Inventory all the damaged items. 2. Take individual color photos of the damaged property, targeting any high ticket items. If possible, videotape the damage items. 3. Have the camera set to record the date /time. 4. If possible, take samples or swatches of carpeting, wallpaper, furniture upholstery, window treatments, and other items where quality will be a claims factor. 5. The inventory should reflect the corresponding picture for validation. 6. Keep this information in a secured location to share when the adjuster arrives.

Clean Up Start cleaning walls, floors and shelves at the bottom or where the worst damage was. Do NOT try to “disinfect”. Give cleaner time to work before you mop or sponge it up. Tackle one room at a time. A two bucket approach is most efficient: use one bucket for rinse water and the other for the cleaner.
