PIA members and other agents may now access an archive of the September 27 webinar in which we educated agents about the changes that FEMA is making to the eligibility for the National Flood Insurance Program's Preferred Risk Policy. That webinar and other resources is available now on PIA National's website here.

FEMA is making changes to the eligibility for Preferred Risk Policies (PRP) to help reduce the financial burden placed on some property owners whose buildings are newly mapped from a low hazard zone into a high-risk flood area. These changes will directly affect many agencies that sell flood insurance and could affect some of their current policyholders. Changes apply on select new and renewal policies with effective dates on or after January 1, 2011. As of October 1, 2010, FEMA/NFIP began sending notices to current policyholders. As a result, PIA members must understand these changes now.

PIA wishes to thank Hartford Flood for sponsoring this important educational webinar. PIA also wishes to thank our webinar presenters: Rita Hollada, PIA's resident PIA member expert on the NFIP, as well Karen Piacenta of Hartford Flood and Lindsey Erickson of National Flood Services (NFS), both of whom provided supporting guidance in preparing this PIA webinar.
