Flood insurance goes beyond the coverage of a standard homeowners insurance policy and protects you from more severe types of water damage, like heavy rain, melting snow, and severe coastal storms. After all, water's great in pools and on water slides but not so much in places it doesn't belong in your home. So, whether you're required to buy flood insurance or just want additional protection for your property, GEICO can help insure your investment with a flood policy through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

Do I need flood insurance?

If you live in an area at high risk for floods, flood insurance may be required by your lender. Enter your address here to determine if you live in in a high-risk zone in the United States.

Do you think your house is safe from flooding because you don't live near the coast? The truth is, floods can occur anywhere including areas outside of high-risk flood zones. Another thing to consider is that most homeowners insurance doesn't cover flood damage.

Water doesn't wait and neither should you. Learn more about Flooding in America to help determine if you need to consider getting a flood insurance quote.

When should I buy flood insurance?

Buy flood insurance before a flood risk is approaching. Most flood insurance policies require a 30-day waiting period before the coverage is effective. Exceptions include if you've purchased a new home and the closing is in less than 30 days.

What is a flood?

A flood is defined by the NFIP as: A general and temporary condition where two or more acres of normally dry land or two or more properties are inundated by water or mudflow.

What does flood insurance cover?

Flood insurance provides coverage for both the structure of the home and personal property in case of damage.

Flood insurance policies usually cover:

  • Appliances
  • Carpet and flooring
  • Cabinets
  • Electrical and plumbing
  • Heating and air units

Keep in mind that structure and personal property coverages usually have separate limits and deductibles so read the policy details carefully. Our flood insurance counselors are happy to help. Call us at (800) 841-3005.

What isn't covered by flood insurance?

The NFIP flood insurance contract does not provide coverage for things like:

  • Damage caused by earth moving
  • Additional living expenses
  • Retaining walls and decks
  • Swimming pools
  • Currency or valuable papers

This is not a complete list. You should read your policy contract to make sure you know what is and isn't covered. Our flood insurance counselors are also available to help you with questions.

Does flood insurance cover the basement?

There is limited coverage in the basement. Certain items used to service the residence are covered, like water heaters, furnaces, washers, and dryers.

Carpeting and wall finishing are not covered. Neither is other personal property.

Flood Insurance Frequently Asked Questions

  • What can I do to help keep my home safe from floods?
  • How do I make a flood claim?
    You can report a claim by calling the carrier listed on your policy paperwork. Check out the partner claims contact page for phone numbers.
  • Does homeowners insurance cover flood damage?
    Most standard homeowners insurance policies do not cover damage from flooding. If you live in a designated flood zone or an area that is prone to flooding, flood insurance is important to cover damages that may not be covered by your home insurance policy.
  • Are there different kinds of flood insurance?
    There are two types of flood insurance: structural and contents coverage. Structural flood insurance comes in all flood insurance policies and covers items like the floor, walls, or other things permanently attached to the home. Contents coverage must be purchased separately for items that aren't permanent fixtures in the home.
  • Can I get insurance in a high risk flood area?
    Yes, you can - and you should! Living in a high-risk flood area does not disqualify you from insurance. If your property has a history of floods or is in a high-risk zone, we recommend obtaining a flood insurance quote today to cover your home.
