    • The SEP starts as of the date the declaration is made, the incident start date, or, if different, the start date identified in the declaration, whichever is earlier.
    • The SEP ends 2 full calendar months following the end date identified in the declaration or, if different, the date the end of the incident is announced, whichever is later.

    Compliance Requirements

    You must confirm the customer resides or resided in the affected area, confirm if the customer had another valid election period at the time of the incident period, and has not used the election.

    If all qualifications are met, you must complete the SEP section of the application with the following:

    • SEP Code: DST
    • SEP Date: Start date of the incident period.
