  • Need Flood Insurance?  New Website Helps Homeowners Find Affordable Options


For most Pennsylvanians trying to buy individual flood insurance coverage, especially for their homes, the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) run by the federal government was thought to be the only option.  However, now that Congress is mandating that federal subsidies end for NFIP coverage and that premiums be based on the property's actual risk, costs for this coverage are rising and may become difficult for many homeowners to afford.  


The State Insurance Commission has created a new one-stop shop at, where homeowners and renters can find incormation about available insurance.  NOTE: to access the page click on "Flood" under "Top Pages"........


For decades the National Flood Insurance Program kept its premiums artificially low, but an unprecedented number of claims following Hurricane Katrina sent the program into billions of dollars in debt, resulting in large premium increases.


The good news for Pennsylvania consumers is that these rapidly rising NFIP premiums are making flood insurance more attractive for private market insurers, which are in may cases offering coverage at substantially lower costs.

  • A car can easily be carried away by just 2 feet of rushing water.
  • Hurricanes, winter storms, and snowmelt are common-but often overlooked causes of flooding.
