Hurricane Season Is Here—Are Your Clients Prepared?

June 3, 2015

June 1 marks the start of the Atlantic Hurricane Season. Make sure your clients are fully prepared. While you're talking to them about their homeowners, wind and hurricane coverage, don't forget to have the "flood talk." It might be the most important conversation you have with your clients this year.

Flood insurance will help your clients get back on their feet. But only if they have the right coverage to make the necessary repairs and replace their belongings. After any disaster, there are some who find they didn't have enough coverage because they got only what the lender required, not what they truly needed.

Don't put off having this important conversation with your clients. If you wait until a hurricane is approaching, it will be too late. There typically is a 30-day waiting period before a flood policy goes into effect. Check out the other tips and resources on www.Agents.FloodSmart.gov. Having the flood talk is not always easy, but it is always important.
