Hartford, Conn. - In addition to traditional checks and electronic fund transfers, which deposit emergency funds directly into a customer's bank account, those who sustain losses from a natural or man-made disaster now have the option of receiving money for certain covered expenses with an emergency claim card from The Hartford. This can include coverage for the costs associated with smaller, but vital, day-to- day living essentials.The Hartford Emergency Claim Card is a debit card, issued by JPMorgan Chase, which can be used at ATM machines nationwide to withdraw cash or at stores that accept point-of-sale purchases. Point-of-sale purchases require a Personal Identification Number (PIN), unlike credit card purchases, which require only the card and a signature.

This card rounds out a suite of payment solutions designed by The Hartford to enhance the customer service experience and ease the financial burdens created after a catastrophe strikes, such as a devastating hurricane. The company expects it to be an important resource, especially in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and the past two storm seasons.
