Information For Attorneys Handling NFIP Claims

Understanding the relationship between Federal Emergency Management Agency (“FEMA”) and private flood insurers will help ease the process of filing a flood claim. The typical or primary flood insurance policy is a Standard Flood Insurance Policy (“SFIP”) issued pursuant to the National Flood Insurance Act (“NFIA”), which is administered by FEMA through the National Flood Insurance Program (“NFIP”). FEMA does not issue and administer all SFIPs and has developed the Write Your Own (“WYO”) insurance program to allow private insurance carriers to issue and administer SFIPs under the NFIP. It is important to note that the NFIP is a federal program with many requirements to meet prior to claim payment approval. The following memo contains information that is essential for filing a successful NFIP claim.
