Make Sure Your Clients Understand Spring Flood Risks

The arrival of spring brings long-awaited relief from severe winter weather. For your clients, this means an entire new set of seasonal threats they may not be aware of—spring storms. As your clients' trusted source of information, you can help them understand that the risk of flooding not only threatens their homes and businesses, but also their financial security.

Remind your clients that just like regular homeowners insurance, flood insurance provides the opportunity for their savings (or tax return) to go toward retirement or celebrating life's special moments—instead of paying massive repair bills. Make sure your clients know that flood insurance policies typically go into effect 30 days after purchase, so now is the time to act.

You can keep current on the latest agent resources from the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) at www.Agents.FloodSmart.gov, and share your flood smarts on social media to remind your clients about the financial dangers of spring flooding.

Fantastic PIA member commissions starting with your first policy are just one reason to sell flood insurance through The Hartford. Learn more at www.pianet.com/hartfordfloodinsurance.
