New Jersey, NJ Flood Insurance
The Franchino Insurance Agency provides HOMEOWNERS FLOOD INSURANCE for NJ homes, dwellings, businesses and commercial properties in New Jersey both through the National Flood Program (NFIP) and through another excellent competitive program called Natural Catastrophe Insurance Program (also know as) CatCoverage. Flood coverage can be written for all types of buildings, homes, rental dwellings, condos, commercial buildings, etc.
The NJ Flood Insurance policies that we write through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) are serviced by Selective Insurance Company. They provide excellent support and service.
The CatCoverage program provides an alternative to the National Flood Program. Many times it is more competitive and provides better protection. Their definition of a flood is more liberal than the NFIP.
Building and / or contents coverage limit is five million ($5,000,000.) (sometimes higher) The National Flood program maximum for building is $250,000. for residential and $500,000. for commercial. It is accepted by all lending institutions. It provides coverage from not only flood but earthquake, landslides and mudslides.
It is more competitive for the following reasons:
- No elevation / flood survey is needed (this saves $300. to $1,000.)
- It does not use flood zones
- Coverage is more comprehensive
