It takes a long time for FEMA disaster aid to reach survivors
FEMA deploys Individual Assistance specialists on the ground. Specialists will continue to process assistance for eligible survivors as applications are received.
If survivors receive FEMA assistance, it could reduce their Social Security benefits
Disaster assistance does not count as income. FEMA assistance will not affect Social Security or other federal benefits.
