FloodSmart Resources Assist Agencies Selling Flood
FloodSmart has been revising, updating and expanding their resources for agencies that sell flood insurance. FloodSmart’s dedicated agent site www.Agents.FloodSmart.gov offers agents the resources and tools to help them “speak flood” and assist their customers with the basics of claims and underwriting for the policies they sell. In addition, the July issue of WaterMark outlines additional new agent resources: http://www.nfipiservice.com/Watermark/Special_Resource.html.
During the March 2014 meeting of the Flood Insurance Producers National Committee (FIPNC), PIA National President-elect Richie Clements, who is chairman of FIPNC worked with FloodSmart staff to evaluate the new materials and make suggestions for improvements to assist agents. FIPNC was very pleased and advised that the setup and navigation of the agents’ resources is much improved.
PIA National’s leading flood member representatives, Richie Clements (LA), Tim Russell (CT), and Rita Hollada (DE) encourage all PIA members to visit the new site and leverage these resources for your further benefit to support/aid in building and maintaining your National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) book of business.
