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.
(note: we first posted this in December of 2015, but it was deleted in error)
Adjusters seeking to renew certification must attend an NFIP Adjuster Certification Presentation. Adjusters seeking to become certified must attend an NFIP Presentation and apply for certification with the NFIP Bureau and Statistical Agent, iService. NFIP standards and requirements for certification may be found in the Adjuster Claims Manual.

The Three Policy Forms

Residential Condominium Building Association Policy. Each is used to insure a different type
of property. All, however, contain certain terms and condition (e.g., Mortgage Clause,
Reformation of Coverage) that are unique to flood insurance.
