Do I need flood insurance?

  • Just one inch of water in an average home can cause more than $25,000 in damage.
  • Flooding can happen anywhere. More than 25% of flood insurance claims come from outside a high-risk flood area.
  • Flooding is the most common and costly natural disaster in the United States.
  • If you suffer a flood, you can seek federal disaster assistance, but it may not be enough to make a full recovery. Most homeowners policies don't cover food losses, only flood insurance covers the cost of flood damage.

What should I know about flood insurance?

  • A homeowners policy does not protect against loss or damage from a flood.
  • With a flood policy from the NFIP, you're covered up to $250,000 for your home and $100,000 for belongings.
