Should You Buy Flood Insurance?

hurricane_flagThe Importance of Flood Insurance…

Did you know that according to FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Association), everyone in the United States lives in a flood zone?  It’s just a question of whether you live in a low, moderate, or high risk area.

One of the toughest lessons learned from past storms involves assumptions.  Assumptions about insurance that may be outdated or unfounded.  Assumptions that prove to costly and painful.

Of particular importance is understanding the very real difference between having homeowners insurance coverage (only) and having flood insurance (additionally).

Even if you don’t live along the water, please be aware that flood damage can happen far inland.

Wisely take the time to learn more about flood zones and ask questions of your insurance professional.

Be proactive, to better protect yourself and property.  Here’s to your financial well-being,
