Helping people overcome decision paralysis is a regular part of UP’s work, and we do it through the education and support we offer through our programs and website. Many of our suggestions for navigating challenges come from people who’ve shared their successes with UP to pay forward the help we gave them. You’ll find them in our Survivor’s Speak Tips and throughout our Claim Help libraries.
Team UP works hard to get state laws into place that give disaster victims more time and options to make the best use of insurance funds to restore their assets and quality of life.
This month we secured a BIG advocacy win in Colorado. By signing a bill that UP helped negotiate and pass, Governor Polis gave Colorado residents the same enhanced flexibility that Californians and Oregonians have to use insurance funds to replace their homes as they see fit without leaving insurance money on the table. Many UP volunteers testified in support of the bill, it’s a team win!
