Flood insurance is a financial protection policy that helps homeowners cover damages to their property caused by flooding. Most lenders require you to buy flood insurance if the property you want is located in a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) as designated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Homes in these areas are at a higher risk of sustaining significant damage or complete loss due to flooding.

Who needs flood insurance?

Whether you need flood insurance depends on where your home is located and whether you are within or near a high-risk flood zone. If you have recently purchased a home in a high-risk flood area, your lender will let you know right away if you need flood insurance.

If you’re still unsure, you can always contact a flood insurance company and speak to a licensed agent who can give you a clear answer.

According to FEMA, just one inch of water can cause $25,000 in damage to your property.

Whether you live near a river known for overflowing or in an area that experiences extreme rainfall, flood insurance may be highly recommended for your location.

How does flood insurance work?

Once you purchase your policy through a flood insurance company, your property is protected against flooding.

In the unfortunate event that floodwater damages your home, you can contact your insurance provider by phone, online, or on their mobile app. They will ask you for specifics regarding the nature of the damage, and in most cases, they will send an adjuster to calculate the extent of the loss.

Your flood insurance company will guide you through your claim until the end. Once you receive your settlement, you can apply those funds to repair your home and replace damaged or lost belongings.
