Preferred Risk Policies: A Small Investment Protects You from a Big Problem
Every year, thousands of homeowners and renters experience devastating flooding events, even in the low-risk flood zone.
It only takes a few inches of water to cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage to your home, and without flood insurance, most residents have to pay out of pocket or take out loans to repair and replace damaged items.
An NFIP Preferred Risk Policy (PRP) can cost less than $500 annually to protect your primary home in the low-risk flood zone for $250,000 building and $100,000 contents.
Disaster assistance, if available, comes as a loan payable with interest. FEMA grants, if you qualify, provide about $5,000 on average per household; while the average flood claim is closer to $43,000.
