NFIP Video Highlights Recent Changes
FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) has a new video that “covers important NFIP changes including new Non-Residential categories, new guidance for determining a Primary Residence, revised rate tables for certain Post-FIRM buildings, and revised ICC rates. You’ll also learn about modifications to the underwriting forms, Floodproofing Certificate, and the endorsement and cancellation refund rules. And finally, something that is not part of the November 1 program changes but also coming soon: a new FEMA Elevation Certificate incorporating a new building diagram.” To view, click here.
