Part of preparing for a hurricane includes strengthening your home. There are a number of ways to do this that can help to minimize damage sustained during a storm.
One very important but often overlooked but part of preparing for a storm is insurance. Be sure to reach out to offer your policyholders an insurance checkup.
Now that you should be aware of your flood risk and have created an evacuation plan, it’s time to start assembling disaster supplies. Start by making a list of various supplies you’ll need to both get through the storm and its aftermath.
The flood insurance market has historically lagged behind other lines of business when it comes to customer simplicity, agent experience, and innovation. There has been limited progress in terms of operations and workflows within companies, the way in which agents are educated, and how the product is sold. However, one flood solutions provider that boasts a 35-year history and deep expertise in this marketplace is driving innovation and modernization into the flood insurance industry.

Floods are becoming more common in the United States. In an age where three-quarters of the country lives paycheck to paycheck, that means most of us are just one bad storm away from disaster. But it doesn’t have to be that way. At NFS, we’ve dedicated ourselves to expanding flood protection for Americans around the country. Here’s our five-pronged approach for making sure more people who need flood insurance actually have it.
As insurance agents know, the start of spring is also the start of flood season. In the coming months, your customers will face an increased risk for flooding—and if the last few years are any indication, some of that flooding could be severe, according to the National Weather Service. More generally, changing weather patterns year-round are making flood damage more common.
At NFS, we are committed to serving the nation and protecting against the damaging impact of flooding. And this year, we could be facing more severe weather. With the impact of COVID-19 being felt across the country, NFS is dedicated to preventing further turmoil and we are supporting agents nationwide in protecting their insureds from the risk of costly flooding. With NFIP policies taking 30 days to come into effect, now is the time to ensure policyholders at risk have coverage in place.
NFS follows Benjamin Franklin’s lead in guiding our claims solution. As we enter an unprecedented flood season, NFS has made every preparation to deliver a fast and seamless claims experience for your insureds. Hurricanes can move quickly and unpredictably, and it is critical to have a claims partner who can respond in real-time to handle the most severe challenges Mother Nature can throw our way.
