The Louisiana Department of Insurance (LDI) and Kenner Councilman George Branigan are creating two temporary LDI resource centers to help constituents after Hurricane Ida.

Trained specialists from LDI’s Office of Consumer Advocacy will help constituents understand their insurance policies, assist them with filing complaints through LDI and answer general insurance questions.

The LDI resource centers will operate from convenient locations in Kenner next Wednesday and Thursday. The Louisiana Department of Insurance asks that all participating constituents bring copies of their insurance policies with them to the meetings. Masks are required at all LDI resource centers.

“We are here for the people of Louisiana,” Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon said. “Bring your policies and bring your questions. We’re ready to help.”
