National Flood Insurance Program
Hurricane Sandy is a grim reminder of the importance of flood insurance. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is a vital program with more than 5.5 million policyholders insured for about $1.3 trillion. In 2012, President Barack Obama signed the Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 which reauthorized the NFIP for five years. It also made significant reforms to the program designed to help it become financially sound by charging actuarial rates. While some of the provisions of the law have been implemented, others have raised concerns and discussions in Congress about the program raising rates to reflect true flood risk and changes to Flood Insurance Rate Maps.

PCI is closely monitoring developments associated with the NFIP.
