EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - FEMA will be assisting residents sign up for individual assistance on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Effingham County Recreation Gym at 808 Highway 119 in Springfield.
You can apply for FEMA aid by visiting their website here, calling them at 1.800.621.3362, or by downloading their mobile app.
You will enter your name, address and description of the damage. You will need your social security number and bank routing number and you will also be asked about your household income and what kind of insurance you have.
Even if you have insurance, officials say it's a good idea to still register with FEMA.
Once you register, a case will be opened and a FEMA inspector will call you and then have to come to your house for an inspection. You do need to be present for that and you will need to show an I.D. and proof of residence and ownership.
