NFIP EXTENDED FOR 2 WEEKS
Yesterday, Congress extended the National Flood Insurance Program for 2 weeks until December 22nd, 2017.
While this may temporarily relieve the urgency of a program lapse, we still urge you to be vigilant and follow these recommendations:
- If your flood insurance policy is due for renewal in the next 45 days, renew the policy as soon as possible
- If you are closing on a house after December 22nd, consider paying the flood policy now or move the closing before December 22nd
- Consult your insurance agent and lender for your own specific situation
We will continue to keep you informed as we approach the next deadline. We are advocating Congress for a long term reauthorization of the NFIP.
