Flood Insurance Coverage Details

Recently in California dams that were built in the 1900s have begun to falter as a result of deterioration, and the consequences of this deterioration include that floods are more likely in specific areas. This is one reason among other reasons why Californians need flood insurance. This type of insurance generally protects structures and belongings and it protects against personal injuries. It’s a standalone policy.

There are two primary types of flood insurance coverage, and these are replacement cost value (RCV) and actual cash value (ACV). Sometimes you can choose which of these two types of coverage to have for your flood insurance policy and other times you cannot. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) determines that certain coverages can be had at RCV and other coverages can be had at ACV. An advantage however, of working with an independent insurance agent is that he or she can provide you with greater coverage options than the federal government can. At Riskguard Insurance Solutions we can provide you with these options.

If you want to determine the flood-risk level of the area in which you live, use the FEMA Map Service Center’s search tool. Your flood insurance costs will be determined in part by the level of flood risk in your area.
