Common questions about Private Flood Insurance: 

When do you require an elevation certificate? 

  • Our program requires an elevation certificate for risks that are Post Firm, as indicated by NFIP Mapping of zones and when the area entered into their program.
  • Pre-FIRM is any building constructed prior to 12/31/1974 or before the effective date of an initial FIRM for a community.
  • Post-FIRM applies to new construction and those built after the effective date of the first FIRM for a community.

What additional coverages does your program offer that NFIP doesn’t have? What makes yours better?

    • Loss of use/Additional Living Expense on primary residential homes
    • Lava Flow Endorsement
    • Improvements & Betterments Endorsement

Can your program list multiple buildings in one policy, or are they quoted on an individual basis?

  • Our program does allow for multiple properties to be listed on a single Master Policy providing they're owned by the same legal entity. 
  • Our Dedicated Underwriters can help you take multiple single policies and organize them together onto one policy (including those with different effective dates).
