(CNN) – Five months after super-storm Sandy flooded tens of thousands of homes in New York and New Jersey many people are still fighting to get the cash already awarded to them by insurance companies.

Her insurance claim was settled for over $50,000 but her mortgage company won’t release the funds. An agent told her it’s because she’s behind in her payments.
