I am hosting a Senior Information Fair on Wednesday, October 16, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Kallet Civic Center in Oneida. Experts from local businesses, nonprofits and government agencies will provide important information on health care, STAR registration, housing, avoiding scams, local services, and more. All senior citizens in my district are invited to attend this free event.
Starting on Tuesday, October 1, individuals, families, and small businesses can purchase health insurance through New York State of Health, the official state health plan marketplace. People can compare insurance options; calculate costs; check eligibility and sign up for programs like Medicaid; learn about financial assistance; and enroll online, in-person, over the phone, or by mail. Coverage is effective starting January 1, 2014.

Just two months after the devastating floods, state funds are being released to residents in the affected areas. I was with Gov. Cuomo in Oneida as he announced that $13.6 million in flood recovery checks would be delivered today.
Yesterday, Governor Cuomo announced a $16 million Flood Recovery Program to assist homeowners, small businesses, and farms in areas hardest hit by recent flooding. Many people will not be able to return to their homes due to extensive damage, and others face substantial rebuilding costs that are not covered by insurance. Unfortunately, the financial and property loss from the floods is below the amount that triggers federal FEMA and other federal assistance.
