Most homeowners insurance policies, including those offered by H&H Insurance Planning do not cover damage caused by flooding. This is important to check when getting flood insurance quotes. If your community participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), you can buy flood insurance coverage through agents enrolled in the NFIP-Direct program.
Federal Flood Insurance Coverage
Most flood insurance is written through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
A flood insurance policy normally takes 30 days from the date of purchase to go into effect. So don’t wait until a flood is imminent to buy a policy.
The National Flood Insurance Program is only available in the United States.
