Did you know that your home insurance policy does not cover damage to your property from flood? -- And in most cases, neither does your business owners policy!
The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is a federally sponsored insurance program which provides flood insurance coverage with a maximum limit of $250,000 on single family homes, two to four family dwellings and condo units. Non-residential units can be covered up to $500,000.
Excess flood insurance may also be prudent to insure up to replacement cost of your property.
No building is immune to flooding. In fact, almost 25% of flood claims come from low to moderate flood risk areas.
A majority of the flood maps within multiple counties in Massachusetts will be changed by FEMA in 2010 and 2011. If you purchase a flood policy now, you will be grandfathered into a preferred risk zone under the standard program; should the revised maps indicate that you are in a high risk flood zone.
