Don't Wait For The Rain to Check Your Flood Coverage!

If you want peace of mind, get flood insurance now or make sure that the coverage you have is up to date. Then, the next time you face a threat, you will know that your home and family are protected. To ensure that you have the right coverage, here are some things to look for in your flood insurance policy.

Find Out If You Are In A Flood Zone

You can consult local flood maps or check FEMA's website to find out if you are in a flood zone. The good news is, you may be eligible for the National Flood Insurance Program if you are in a participating area.

The Benefits of Not Living In A Flood Zone

Even if you are not in a flood-prone area, and not legally required to have flood insurance, flooding can still happen. If you choose to get flood coverage in an area that is less prone to flooding, you should be able to get coverage at a lower rate than in a flood-prone area.

Make Sure You Have Enough Coverage

While flood policies cover the cost of replacing the structure and contents, it generally does not cover things like temporary housing while your home is uninhabitable. Check your policy to make sure it covers everything you need it to cover like debris removal, business interruption and any other loss that may occur as the result of the destruction of your home.

Making sure that you have the right coverage is very important. Taking the time to make sure you have the right coverage now will ensure that you have it when you need it.
