Flooding is America's #1 natural disaster
Are you protected against flood damage? Floods can happen anytime, anywhere—resulting from storms, hurricanes or a rapid accumulation of rainfall.
Most homeowners insurance policies do not cover flood events.
More than 20% of flood insurance claims come from moderate to low-risk areas.
Just a few inches of water can cost thousands of dollars in damage.
Given the very real risk of floods across our country, it’s important to ensure your property is protected. And be sure to plan ahead; flood insurance policies often require a 30-day waiting period before coverage goes into effect (except when purchasing a new home and the closing is in less than 30 days).
As a national broker, McGriff pairs big broker capabilities with a personalized, boutique agency level of service from start to finish. We’re here to serve you.
Types of flood insurance
There are two routes you can take for flood insurance: the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and private flood insurance. At McGriff, we can help you explore each option to find what works best for you.
- NFIP coverage is paid out by the government and funded through taxpayer money
- Limited to $250,000 in coverage
Private Flood Insurance
- Can provide higher coverage limits than the NFIP
- Covers a greater variety of things
- May be less expensive in some areas
- Some policies can pay for living expenses in the event your home becomes uninhabitable
There are many factors to consider when selecting the right flood insurance coverage. Let one of our specialists help you make the best choice to protect your home.
