Private Flood Insurance Checklist

Back in August, we added sample Private Flood Insurance Procedures to the free Lending Tools page of our website. 

These sample procedures were designed to give you a starting point or framework to help you develop procedures for your institution.  We encourage you to take these procedures and tweak as needed.

The procedures include a Private Flood Insurance Checklist that will help walk you through the process when a borrower presents you with a private flood insurance policy.

Listen to the video as Diane walks you through the checklist and gives some tips to assist you in the process.

Flood Insurance Extended for 6 Months

Well that was fast! Last Friday, we alerted you that the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which was set to expire on May 31st, was extended for two weeks, until June 14th. Yesterday; however, the Senate’s disaster relief plan was given the green light by the House and, once the President signs, will extend the NFIP through September 30, 2019.

Our hope is that before September the powers that be will find a longer-term solution to keeping the NFIP afloat.


Stay tuned!



Flood Insurance Extended

For those of you that keep an eye on the never-ending saga of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), we have some good news, some bad news and some kind of good news.


In case you missed it, the NFIP was set to expire today (May 31st); however, yesterday the House approved an extension to fund the NFIP (good news) … for two weeks (bad news).  So, they have until June 14th to come up with another plan.


The kind of good news is that the Senate does have a disaster relief package in the works which, if approved, will extend the NFIP for six months.  It’s not a long-term solution but we’ll have to take what we can get.


As always, stay tuned!!
