FEMA is in the process of a nationwide flood zone remapping project that may affect your customers, and can also offer you an opportunity to expand your book of business. PIA's flood partner, The Hartford, understands that the current remapping may pose some challenges to you in keeping your current policyholders informed and prepared for zoning changes. They are ready to assist their PIA flood agents in understanding the process and in making this transition easy and profitable for you.

The Hartford has produced a web-basedtoolkit to help PIA/Hartford flood agents:

  • Understand the remapping process and timeline
  • Answer your clients' questions about remapping
  • Protect your clients from unnecessary extra costs
  • Protect yourself from additional E&O exposure
  • Communicate with your clients about remapping in their community
  • Reach out to prospects to expand your flood business
  • Find current remapping information
  • Work through conversion processes

In the tool kit you will find information to guide you as well as information you can provide to your clients. Agents who are already enrolled in the PIA/Hartford flood program may access The Hartford's web-based toolkit (aka the "2010 Remapping Navigator") at http://www.hartfordfloodonline.com/.

To learn more about the FEMA/NFIP remapping process, why it is being done and how it can affect your clients, please read the following article on PIA National's website.
