A good idea even if you’re not in a flood plain.
Over that past decade, residents throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania know all too well the devastation and havoc flood damage can wreak on people’s lives — destroying homes, uprooting families, and costing billions in rebuilding and getting communities whole again. As an individual, whether you live by the coast or further inland, flood insurance is a top-of-mind coverage that should be part of your protection program.
Martin Insurance Group can provide you with flood insurance, reviewing the details of the plans available, including the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). We understand that over the last few years this federally subsidized program has undergone extreme scrutiny by Congress in an effort to make it a viable option for residents. Insurance rates have gone up and for some they have been significant, depending on where you live. We’ll evaluate what makes sense for you, including private flood insurance programs that are being made available more readily than before to residents.
Going above and beyond federal coverage limits.
Through the NFIP, you can obtain coverage for direct physical damage to your property from floodwater up to $250,000. Typically, the coverage does not cover the contents of your home, although enhancements are available up to $100,000.
Private insurers also offer various plans as well as excess flood insurance, which offers coverage beyond the basic limits. Depending on the value of your home and where you live, you can obtain substantially increased limits of coverage for both your structure and personal property. You can also obtain insurance to cover the additional living expenses required while your property is restored, such as staying at a hotel, restaurant meals, etc. In addition, we can provide flood insurance coverage for vacation homes, rental properties, condominium units, and townhouses.

Q. Why do I need flood insurance?
A. Regular homeowners insurance does not generally cover damage caused by flooding. Without it, your home could be gone overnight — and you’d have to pay to replace it out of your own pocket. Martin Insurance Group can help you assess your needs and get both federal coverage and insurance from private companies that covers some or all of your losses.
