Federal flood insurance policies are issued by licensed insurance agents and underwritten by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). We provide documents required to certify a property's flood risk so you can obtain a federal flood insurance policy, set you insurance rates, or correct FEMA mapping errors.
Private flood insurance policies are underwritten by private companies and not the federal government. Lenders must accept private policies so long as they meet minimum standards. We provide data and reports to help insurers underwrite policies, and for property owners to better understand flood risk.
An Elevation Certificate is a federal form used by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to property rate flood insurance premiums and determine if a property is required to carry flood insurance.
