You can only purchase flood insurance through an insurance agent or an insurer participating in the NFIP. You cannot buy it directly from the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). If your insurance agent does not sell flood insurance, you can contact the NFIP Referral Call Center at 1-800-427-4661 to request an agent referral.

Typically, there's a 30-day waiting period from date of purchase until your policy goes into effect. Here are the exceptions:

    -If the building is newly designated in the high-risk Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) and you purchase flood insurance coverage for it within the 13-month period following a map revision, there is a 1-day waiting period.

    -If you purchase flood insurance in connection with making, increasing, extending, or renewing your mortgage loan, there is no waiting period.

    -If you select additional insurance as an option on your insurance policy renewal bill, there is no waiting period.

    -If a property is affected by flooding on burned federal land and the policy is purchased within 60 days of the fire-containment date, there may be no waiting period. Waiving of the waiting period is determined at the time of claim.

Build a Kit

    If you’re already on “high ground” during a flood, stay where you are. Be prepared by having your supplies already stored. #FloodSafety
