Do You Need Flood Insurance?
As you may know, your Homeowners Insurance does not cover flood damage. According to NFIP, nearly 25% of their claims occur in moderate to low risk areas. The good news is that there are now 2 options for Flood insurance. They are as follows:

NFIP (National Flood Insurance Program)
  • This is a national program is backed by FEMA
  • The cost is based on government mapping of zones and their likelihood to flood. 
  • If you are in a “higher” frequency flood zone, you are required to obtain an Elevation Certificate. These certificates can be quite expensive.
  • Unless coverage is being required by a lender at the close of escrow, there is a mandatory 30 day waiting period.
  • Maximum amount of coverage available is $250,000. on the Building and $100,000 on Contents. Loss of Use is NOT available.
  • Requires annual payment in full.
  • Not backed by FEMA - but you are protected by the California Insurance Guarantee Association as long as the carrier is licensed to do business in the state of California.
  • Rates are based at the location level, which means lower rates in many instances.
  • No Elevation Certificate.
  • No 30 day waiting period.
  • Coverage limits in excess of $1M available. Optional Loss of Use up to $50,000.
  • Payment options available.
If you don’t currently have Flood insurance, now is a great time to think about it. If you do have Flood Insurance, but it is currently thru the NFIP, I would encourage you to call us for a No-Obligation quote!
