Low Cost Flood Insurance Relief for Homeowners

Many properties in Yolo County, Natomas, Visalia and other areas throughout California have been subject to revised flood maps since October 2008.  The premiums for these policies can run up to $1,400 or more per year!

GOOD NEWS! FEMA has extended the lower cost Preferred Risk Policy (PRP) eligibility for buildings affected by flood map changes from October 1, 2008 through January 1, 2011 for TWO additional years!  This means a flood insurance policy premium of $365 or LESS annually is available to those property owners!

If you live in Natomas, the unincorporated areas of Yolo County, Visalia, Sutter County or any other area that has recently been affected by a flood map change, your 2011 and 2012 flood insurance renewal will qualify for the lower cost PRP option!

The National Flood Insurance Program is confusing at best.  Luckily, Van Beurden Insurance Services has dedicated knowledgeable agents ready to serve you.  Please contact our office with any questions or concerns regarding your flood insurance and eligibility for this low cost option.

*Please note that this extension DOES NOT apply to those homes that were in a designated Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) prior to October 1, 2008.
