Facts + Statistics: Flood insurance

 
National Flood Insurance Program

Flood damage is excluded under standard homeowners and renters insurance policies. However, flood coverage is available in the form of a separate policy both from the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and from a few private insurers.                                       

Congress created the NFIP in 1968 in response to the rising cost of taxpayer-funded disaster relief for flood victims and the increasing amount of damage caused by floods. The NFIP makes federally backed flood insurance available in communities that agree to adopt and enforce floodplain management ordinances to reduce future flood damage. The NFIP is self-supporting for the average historical loss year. This means that unless there is a widespread disaster, operating expenses and flood insurance claims are financed through premiums collected.

The NFIP provides coverage for up to $250,000 for the structure of the home and up to $100,000 for personal possessions. Private flood insurance is available for those who need additional insurance protection, known as excess coverage, over and above the basic policy or for people whose communities do not participate in the NFIP. Some insurers have introduced special policies for high-value properties. These policies may cover homes in noncoastal areas and/or provide enhancements to traditional flood coverage. The comprehensive portion of an auto insurance policy includes coverage for flood damage.

A 2016 poll by the Insurance Information Institute found that 12 percent of American homeowners had a flood insurance policy, lower than the 14 percent who had the coverage in 2015. The percentage of homeowners with flood insurance was highest in the South, at 14 percent. Thirteen percent of homeowners in the Northeast had a flood insurance policy, 10 percent of homeowners in the West had a flood insurance policy, while 8 percent of homeowners in the Midwest had flood insurance.

  • As of August 2017, 68 insurance companies participated in the Write Your Own program, started in 1983, in which insurers issue policies and adjust flood claims on behalf of the federal government under their own names.
  • In 2015, 86.5 percent of NFIP policies were held in the WYO program.
  • As of July 2017, 68 percent of policies covered single family homes, 21 percent covered condominiums, and 5 percent covered businesses and other non-residential properties. Two- to four-family units and other residential policies accounted for the remainder.
  • Superstorm Sandy which occurred in October 2012, resulted in $8.6 billion in NFIP payouts as of May 2017, second only to 2005’s Hurricane Katrina with $16.3 billion in payouts

The Louisiana floods of August 2016 ranks as the fourth most significant U.S flood event, based on National Flood Insurance Program payouts as of January 18, 2017. The figures below are preliminary, as claims are still being processed.

 

In 2015 and 2016 Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and West Virginia have experienced devastating rainfall-induced flooding which resulted in billions of dollars in economic losses. In 2015, flash and river floods claimed 176 lives, up dramatically from 38 in 2014.

Hurricane-Related Flooding

A 2013 study of coastal areas by CoreLogic found that 4.2 million homes, with $1.1 trillion in total property exposure, are at risk of damage caused by hurricane storm surge flooding. In the Atlantic Coast region alone, there are approximately 2.4 million homes at risk, valued at more than $793 billion. Total exposure along the Gulf Coast is $354 billion, with 1.8 million homes at risk for potential storm-surge damage. Standard homeowners insurance does not cover property damage from storm surge. However, such coverage is available through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and some private insurers.
