National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP)

Residents of many flood prone areas are eligible for special flood protection provided by the federal government under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The NFIP aims to reduce the impact of flooding on private and public structures. It does so by providing affordable insurance to property owners, renters and businesses and by encouraging communities to adopt and enforce floodplain management regulations.  Your agent can assist you in the purchase of this coverage if you are eligible or you may call the NFIP at 800-638-6620.

Please note that regulatory authority over NFIP flood insurance policies rests with the Federal Emergency Management Association, not with the North Carolina Department of Insurance.

Disaster Mediation

Disaster Mediation

The Commissioner of Insurance may issue an order establishing the Disaster Mediation Program following a state of disaster proclaimed by the Governor or declared by the President. Eligible individuals who have had a homeowners insurance claim partially or completely denied can request a mediation conference in which an independent mediator with no connection to the insurance company will facilitate discussion between the insurance company and the policyholder to help them reach a resolution.

Go room to room in your home, and write down the brand name/description, estimated value and date of purchase of items in your home.
