Severe Weather Update: Maryland Insurance Administration to Open Virtual Disaster Center

The Maryland Insurance Administration will open its Virtual Disaster Center on Thursday, August 10, to help anyone with insurance-related issues or questions about damage from severe weather events that have recently impacted Maryland.

In the Virtual Disaster Center, Maryland residents can ask general insurance questions or meet one-on-one with a Maryland Insurance Administration representative in a private breakout room.

“The Virtual Disaster Center is an additional resource for reaching Maryland insureds affected by severe weather events,” said Maryland Insurance Commissioner Kathleen A. Birrane. “All of our traditional communication lines will remain open and accessible. Also, as needed, Maryland Insurance Administration representatives will continue to be available in person in affected communities.”

The Maryland Insurance Administration can be reached at the following phone numbers: 410 468-2000, 1-800-492-6116 (toll-free), and 1-800-735-2258 (TTY).
