If this is the first time you are purchasing a flood insurance plan, the payment must first be made in full to your agent before your application to request for coverage can be submitted to the insurance company.

How long will flood insurance take to be effective?

How Do I Renew A Flood Insurance Policy?

Flood insurance does not renew automatically, so it is very important to pay on time when your insurance company notifies you of the expiration of your insurance. If you’ve received a flood insurance renewal bill from one of the companies listed here, you can pay online at MyFlood.com.

Allowing your policy to lapse can have serious ramifications. If your flood insurance expires for more than 90 days, or twice for any number of days, you may no longer be eligible for the discounted rate you may have got.
