Flood Insurance

Protect your home from harm.

Flood insurance1 helps cover physical damage to your home and belongings from floods or related losses from rising water. You can purchase a government-run National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) policy through an Allstate agent.

Why buy flood insurance?

When you purchase an NFIP flood policy through an Allstate agent, you're helping protecting yourself from the financial burden flooding can cause. In fact, just one inch of water in a home can cost more than $25,000 in damage. Instead of paying out of pocket or taking out loans to cover your expenses, flood insurance can help make the recovery process quicker, easier and less costly.

Learn about the types of flood insurance.

The NFIP offers two types of flood insurance coverage: Building Property and Personal Property (Contents). The first helps protect your actual home and the second helps cover what's inside. To better prepare for the unexpected, the NFIP recommends purchasing both types of coverage.
