National flood insurance is critical to PA
Reauthorizing the National Flood Insurance Program, also known as the NFIP, is one of the top priorities for the National Association of Realtors® this year. PAR President Kathy McQuilkin said the NFIP is particularly important to Pennsylvania homeowners. “Pennsylvania is 12th in the U.S. with the number of NFIP policies, however, we’re fifth in the nation in the number of flood claims filed. In fact, between 2006 and 2014, flood claims were filed in 66 of our 67 counties.” The Pennsylvania Department of Insurance began to look closely at flood insurance when the previous reauthorization raised rates and people found themselves in danger of losing their homes because they couldn’t afford flood insurance, according to David Buono, consumer liaison at the department. That’s when private insurance options started to enter the market in Pennsylvania and the department created a new website to help consumers find private flood insurance that may provide options in areas that are less prone to flooding.
