New maps are currently being issued and will continue for years, your insureds’ risk may change as well—along with their flood insurance requirements. If the property on which their home or business is located is mapped out of a high-risk area, their flood insurance costs will likely decrease. If they’ve been mapped into a high-risk area, they will be required to purchase flood insurance if their mortgage is through a federally regulated or insured lender.

Through PIA’s endorsed partnerships with The Hartford and Floodbroker, member agents are able to take a proactive approach to making NFIP coverage available to more property owners and helping them close a significant coverage gap, while improving your agency’s bottom line.

If you find your agency in need of a new flood insurance program, please consider PIA’s program with The Hartford, now in its twelfth year. The program is available to PIA members and their policyholders in all 50 states. For more information about the PIA/Hartford flood insurance program, please visit PIA National’s website at www.pianet.com/hartfordfloodinsurance or contact Joseph M. Surowiecki, Jr. of The Hartford at 860-547-5006 or joseph.surowiecki@thehartford.com.
