FloodFlex - Flood Coverage Enhancement

Offering commercial property coverage for out-of-pocket expenses typically faced in the aftermath of a flood
Flooded street

Today’s market demands a thorough and thoughtful approach to flood coverage. FloodFLEX is our commercial flood product designed to eliminate out-of-pocket expenses not covered by traditional flood insurance. 

 

Just one inch of water can cause $25,000 worth of damage. Are your clients protected from flood risks?

 

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) floods - including inland flooding, flash floods, and flooding from seasonal storms - occur in every region of the United States. In fact, 90% of all natural disasters in the U.S. involve flooding. Understanding your insured’s risk and knowing which options to recommend will offer protection when it’s needed most. 

FloodFLEX, exclusively offered by Amwins and administered by The Flood Insurance Agency (TFIA), endorses the policy to increase the loss payable for Coverage A: Building Coverage of a commercial building flood policy from 10% up to 100%.

Your insured receives one payment for the covered flood loss and a second FloodFLEX payment to be used at their discretion for any purpose, such as loss of income, additional expenses, depreciation, or their deductible.

 

Coverage highlights

  • First dollar primary building/contents coverage available up to $10,000,000 for properties located in A, X, and V zones, including almost all coastal properties
  • $5000, $50,000, $100,000, $250,000, and $500,000 deductible options
  • A rate-lock feature, which provides an insured with options to lock in pricing for up to three years, regardless of losses incurred during that time
  • Policies are certified lender compliant, ensuring that policies will be accepted by all federally-backed banks and lenders
