Focusing on Flood? PIA Can Help

September 4, 2012

With the recent passage of a 5-year reauthorization bill for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), PIA members can focus their attention on selling flood insurance to their personal lines and commercial lines clients. PIA is here to assist members in this regard, just as we have been here during the struggle to gain reauthorization of the program and the current effort to implement the new law.

Since 2004, PIA and The Hartford have joined together to provide PIA member agents the opportunity to offer their customers flood insurance through The Hartford, a premier WYO company. The program is available to PIA members and their policyholders in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

The Hartford is dedicated to providing agents with extraordinary customer service and value. The Hartford Flood program offers an easy enrollment process and extremely competitive commissions. Through their national flood insurance service center, The Hartford offers the most advanced Internet services available. They have two plan offerings for PIA members: The Hartford’s Standard program and the Flood Solutions program.

  • The Standard program includes a web-based application process with the agency doing the customer service administration with Internet and live customer service support.
  • The Flood Solutions program includes a streamlined application process with The Hartford’s Flood Insurance Processing Center doing most of the work. Flood Solutions simplifies the writing of flood insurance for the agency.
