Why Do I Need Flood Insurance?

Many personal or commercial policies, including home insurance, renters insurance, and commercial property insurance, do not provide coverage for flooding-related losses or damages. Flood insurance doesn’t usually take effect until 30 days after purchasing a policy. Sometimes a lender may require that you have flood insurance to make, increase, extend or renew your loan; with these requirements, there isn’t a waiting period.

What About Federal Disaster Assistance?

Federal disaster assistance is only available if the U.S. president formally declares a disaster. However, even if you receive disaster assistance, it’s a loan that you must repay with interest—and this loan may be in addition to your existing mortgage loan.

If you live in a community that participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), you might be able to purchase an NFIP plan. The NFIP underwrites most flood insurance, usually through an insurance company or the NFIP Direct system.

What Coverage Is Available?

Two types of coverage are available: structure insurance, which protects your house, and contents coverage, which insures your belongings. Coverage may also be available for debris removal, loss avoidance and cost of compliance.
