Increased chance of flooding means this is the year for flood insurance
Spring is on the way, and substantial amounts of rain in the spring can result in flooding. A flood doesn’t have to be a catastrophic event to bring high out-of-pocket costs, and you don’t have to live in high-risk flood area to suffer flood damage. With climate change and sea level rise, more homes are at risk of flooding than ever before.
Home insurance policies specifically exclude damage from flooding. This means that if your home suffers damage because of flooding, you may not be covered. Armed Forces Insurance can help with that.

- Home insurance policies exclude damage from flooding.
