Don’t Wait for a Flood to Check Your Insurance Coverage

New survey results on flood insurance.
October 8, 2019

A recent survey commissioned by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) found that about half of Americans (51%) don’t know that homeowners insurance does not cover damage/loss caused by a flood event. The survey, conducted online by The Harris Poll among over 2,000 U.S. adults age 18+, found that nearly a third of Americans (31%) incorrectly think damage/loss caused by a flood event is covered by homeowners insurance, and about 1 in 5 (21%) are not at all sure if the damage/loss is covered.
