Lafayette, Louisiana, June 30, 2022 –  WEEKLY CITIZEN 

A Louisiana- specific article breaking down for readers what the program is, how it works and why it’s beneficial, using many quotes from Ed Michael Reggie to highlight the importance. The article states not many people know about the program followed by the quote from Ed Michael Reggie: “Maybe some of it is that people think it’s a lot of red tape and maybe that they won’t be able to qualify, but everything we’re seeing is that people are absolutely qualifying,” Reggie said. “FEMA is being very quick. About three to four weeks and these families are getting a check.” The piece then showcases Ed Michael Reggie’s passion for helping those in need, his sympathy for those who lost loved ones in such astronomical numbers and so unexpectedly and his deep understanding of the financial blow COVID caused everyone: “These overwhelmingly were unexpected deaths,” Reggie said. “We know that the American savings rate is not great, that people were already financially hit by COVID. This is very important that they get this money – so many of them need it.” Lastly, the article ends with a blurb about Ed Michael Reggie warning consumers against possible scammers and the safest program to use:  ‘Reggie warned that people should be aware of scammers trying to get Social Security numbers by posing as funeral home workers or FEMA employees. He said that those applying for reimbursement should go through FEMA only using the number listed on their website.’SHARE:
