Flood coverage through the National Flood Insurance Program
Did you know that most homeowners policies do not cover flood damage? How do you decide if you need flood insurance?
Your home and personal property are often your largest assets. Whether your home is located in a designated flood area or not, your chance of sustaining flood damage is three times greater than having a major fire. Unfortunately, most homeowner policies specifically exclude damage caused by flood or surface water that enters your home. To protect your substantial investment, Union Mutual offers federally funded flood insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). This insurance is available to properties that are located in communities that participate in the NFIP program. Coverage can be obtained for your building and personal property.
Your local independent insurance agent can determine if your community participates in the Federal program and determine if your property is located in a special flood hazard area. A professional agent can answer all your questions and quickly provide you with a quote for flood coverage.
