Your Home Insurance Policy Isn’t Enough
Only the National Flood Insurance Program can provide you with flood insurance. Facts worth knowing about flood insurance and flood-related losses include:
- Flood losses an average of about $38,000 per claim.
- Even if your flooding incident is given a Federal Disaster Assistance declaration, of which only 50 percent are, you’ll most likely have to repay whatever assistance you’re given, including interest.
- Homeowners policies do not provide coverage for flood.
- There is a 30 day waiting period before a policy goes into effect.
