Standard Flood Insurance Reimbursement

Will damage-preventing measures I’ve taken in my home be reimbursed by my Standard Flood Insurance Policy?
 


Some will be. When your insured home is in eminent danger of being flooded, you may receive up to a $1,000 reimbursement for your damage-preventing expenses. Things like renting storage space to protect your belongings, buying sandbags and lumber to make a barricade, and renting pumps are all things that qualify for reimbursement. No deductible is applied to this coverage.
