When disaster strikes, America looks to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Now FEMA looks to you. Join our team and use your talent to support Americans in their times of greatest need. FEMA prepares the nation for all hazards and manages Federal response and recovery efforts following any national incident. We foster innovation, reward performance and creativity, and provide challenges on a routine basis with a well-skilled, knowledgeable, high performance workforce. Please visit www.fema.gov for additional information.
EMERGENCY ASSIGNMENT: Every FEMA employee has regular and recurring emergency management responsibilities, though not every position requires routine deployment to disaster sites. All positions are subject to recall around the clock for emergency management operations, which may require irregular work hours, work at locations other than the official duty station, and may include duties other than those specified in the employee's official position description. Travel requirements in support of emergency operations may be extensive in nature (weeks to months), with little advance notice, and may require employees to relocate to emergency sites with physically austere and operationally challenging conditions.
In this position, the individual will serve as an Insurance Specialist at the Public Assistance (PA) Consolidated Resource Center Atlantic in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico. The incumbent will be responsible for ensuring complex, high-dollar grant subawards comply with all insurance requirements. The ideal candidate will have experience reviewing and interpreting insurance coverage and adjusting a wide range of insurance claims based on damage. Typical assignments include:
- Reviewing and interpreting coverage of all lines of commercial insurance, including but not limited to policies providing coverage against flood, wind, and earthquake.
- Adjusting a wide range of insurance claims based on disaster related damage to avoid duplication of benefits.
- Interpreting National Flood Insurance Program claims.
- Communicating effectively orally and in writing for the purposes of exchanging information with stakeholders in meetings, by telephone, and email.
- Working with teammates and partners to address insurance matters as required by statute, regulation, and policy.
Promotion Potential: Positions filled under Stafford Act regulations generally do not have documented promotion potential; however, dependent on an employee’s ability to perform higher level duties, the continuing need for an employee to perform work associated with a higher level position, and administrative recommendation and approval, promotions may be earned by CORE employees.
Occasional travel - Occasional non-emergency travel may be required.
