Why Buy Flood Insurance?

Spring Daffodils Header

Midwest and interior US river valley homeowners are at risk from floods all year long, but springtime often means an even more heightened risk from flooding. Here are the top three reasons to buy flood insurance now:

  • Protect your investment.

    Purchasing a home is often among the biggest purchases.

    In a flood event, self-insuring means you take the risk to cover all your losses. The average flood insurance claim payment over the last five years was nearly $70,000*.

  • Get Peace of Mind.

    You never know what will happen, or when it will happen. Flooding is the number one most common natural disaster in the United States.

    Flooding occurs in every US state, even in areas considered to be lower risk than other areas.

  • Be Proactive.

    Don’t wait until it’s too late when a flood is about to occur or you’ve already experienced flooding. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) typically has a 30-day waiting period before a policy goes into effect.

Protect your investment, get peace of mind, and be proactive with a flood insurance policy.
