Designating another individual to contact FEMA on your behalf

How do I designate someone to contact FEMA on my behalf?

To designate someone to contact FEMA on your behalf, you must first validate your identity in writing and include a statement identifying the person or persons to act on your behalf with FEMA.

To validate your identity, you must provide FEMA all of the following information:

  • Your full name; AND
  • Date of birth; AND
  • Place of birth; AND
  • Current address.

In addition, the letter must either:

  • Be notarized; OR
  • Include the following statement, "I hereby declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct."

To assist FEMA in identifying your record, we ask that the letter also provide the following additional information:

  • Disaster Number and the FEMA Registration Number assigned to you; OR
  • Your Social Security Number (or last four digits); OR
  • A copy of a State or Federally issued identification card (e.g., driver's license, passport).
