Do Your Clients Think Their Homeowners Insurance Policy Covers Flood?

Although floods seem to have become more common the last few years—or at least they seem to make the news more—many homeowners do not realize that the typical home insurance policy does not cover flooding. And even if they do, they may not know that flood insurance is available as a stand-alone policy. This provides you with an ideal opportunity to educate your clients about a real risk while providing a solution that will help you round accounts and increase your agency’s retention rate.

Not convinced that you want to offer flood insurance to your agency’s clients? PIA can help.

PIA has entered into an exclusive partnership with Floodbroker.com that allows PIA members’ clients and prospects to learn about their flood risks and request a quote for flood insurance from you, their local, participating PIA member agency.

Floodbroker has automated the process of obtaining a flood insurance quote through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and makes this technology available to participating PIA member agents through their very own agency-branded, flood insurance microsites. Agents direct their clients and prospective insureds to their microsite, where they can learn what flood zone they are in and request a flood insurance quote. After answering a few simple questions the quote is emailed to their agent who completes the sale offline using their agency's regular flood insurance carrier. In some cases an actual quote cannot be generated online, but the prospect can still submit the information they have input into the form so that their agent can get back to them and continue the flood insurance sale offline.
