Flood Insurance Reform on Hold (Marion County)

Flood Insurance Reform…On Hold?

Last year federal legislation made significant changes to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). As a consequence, homeowners were very concerned about how much their rates would rise (and rise!). New legislation signed into law in March this year, the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2013, repealed some of the NFIP program changes in an attempt to keep flood insurance affordable for homeowners in our area and across the nation.

The new law lowers the recent rate increases on some policies, prevents some future rate increases, and implements a surcharge on all policyholders. The Act also repeals certain rate increases that have already gone into effect and provides for refunds for some policyholders. As part of this new law, FEMA will continue to work with Congress to identify how to make floodplain insurance affordable and will designate a Flood Insurance Advocate to advocate for the fair treatment of NFIP policy holders. More information about the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2013 can be found here: http://www.fema.gov/flood-insurance-reform. You can also contact your local insurance agent to find out how the most recent changes will affect your flood insurance costs.

Even with all the changes that have happened, flood insurance is still the best way to protect a property and its contents from flooding. Flood insurance for newer homes built to current standards is still very affordable. If you or someone you work with is interested in obtaining flood insurance, FEMA provides a means to search for an agent that provides flood insurance on its outreach website: www.Floodsmart.gov. Click on “Agent Locator” under Resources in the right-hand column.

Marion County participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The county’s flood management practices and its participation in the Community Rating System (CRS) of the NFIP brings many benefits to county residents, including a savings of up to 20% on flood insurance premiums. That places Marion County among the top jurisdictions nationwide participating in the CRS. In addition, for properties in the county but outside of cities, the Marion County Planning Division will provide you with the following information upon request:

  • Whether a property is in or out of a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) as shown on the current Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) of the County.
  • Additional flood insurance data for a site, such as the FIRM zone and the base flood elevation or depth, if shown on the FIRM.
  • A handout on the flood insurance purchase requirement that can help people who need a mortgage or loan for a property in the SFHA.
  • FEMA elevation certificates for construction in the Marion County SFHA since 1979.
  • Regulations for development in the floodplain.
