NFIP Summary of Coverage

NFIP Summary of Coverage
This document was prepared by the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) to help you
understand your flood insurance policy. It provides general information about deductibles, what is
and is not covered by flood insurance, and how items are valued at the time of loss.
This document is based on the Standard Flood Insurance Policy Dwelling Form, which is used to
insure one-to-four-family residential buildings and single-family dwelling units in a condominium
building.

New Guidelines for NFIP Adjusters

New Guidelines for NFIP Adjusters

A note about the use of the term “Authorized NFIP Adjuster” rather than “Certified NFIP Adjuster”: It is FEMA’s position that certification requires a more formal course of study and the successful passing of a series of examinations before certification is awarded, such is the case with Certified Public Accounts. Also, the FCN will now be referred to as the Flood Control Number.
