What You Need to Know About Flood Coverage
Hurricanes, winter storms and snowmelt are common (but often overlooked) causes of flooding. Don’t forget that even if you aren’t located near a coast, the heavy rains and fierce winds that accompany a hurricane can extend far inland. Even if you don’t think your area will be seriously affected, flood insurance is still something that needs to be seriously considered.
It takes 30 days after purchasing a flood insurance policy for it to take effect. So it’s important to buy insurance before the floodwaters start to rise! While Church Mutual does not offer flood coverage, we do work with a third-party provider on your behalf to help secure flood coverage. Call us today to ensure your peace of mind at (800) 554-2642.
Here’s an important fact: you are only eligible to purchase flood insurance if your community participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

If your community doesn’t participate in the NFIP, you can petition your local government to take the actions to qualify for flood protection.
This information, and much more, can be found at www.floodsmart.gov, the official site of NFIP.
