Florida homeowners are frequently becoming victims of insurance fraud. In recent years, Florida homeowners have signed contracts or forms that include Assignment of Benefit Agreements. By signing documents with an Assignment of Benefits agreement, you may be allowing the contractor to collect your claim settlement funds directly from your insurance company. Before you sign any contracts with a contractor, be sure to contact your insurance company first.
Refrain from signing contracts or forms you do not fully understand. Contact your insurance company if you have any questions about a contract.
