Financial recovery and risk management
As you attempt to restore your life and home after a disaster, you will face many decisions. In many cases, the decisions will involve large investments. Naturally, you will want to recover as much as possible through your homeowners insurance policy. Where insurance falls short of your needs, other types of assistance may be available, especially in a place the president has declared a disaster area. Uncovered claims are tax deductible if they exceed 10 percent of your adjusted gross income. Part of your financial recovery involves making good business decisions when contracting for repairs.
