FEMA Extends Grace Period for Flood Insurance Renewal Premium:
FEMA continues to take proactive steps to address the COVID-19 pandemic. To help serve its National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) customers who may be experiencing financial hardships, the agency is extending the grace period to renew flood insurance policies from 30 to 120 days. We understand due to the widespread economic disruption arising from this pandemic, policyholders may not meet the standard deadline for renewing their policies. This extension will allow additional time for policyholders who may be struggling financially to pay insurance premiums and ensure their policies are not cancelled for nonpayment of premium due to circumstances beyond their control.
2019 NFIP Reauthorization News:
With the NFIP Authority set to expire at midnight, December 20, 2019, the House and Senate extended the NFIP Authority through September 30, 2020 as part of the Continuing Resolution HR 3055. The President signed the bill, which continues the current authority and contains no reforms to the NFIP at this time. Given the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the NFIP reauthorization, including a potential lapse in authority, we encourage Agents to submit their new applications, renewals and coverage endorsements as soon as possible.
