I am currently an NFIP customer. How do I cancel my existing policy?

Effective October 1, 2018, the National Flood Insurance Program will allow customers to cancel their flood policy mid-term, but only if a duplicate policy has been secured from another source. Examples of a duplicate policy include Private Flood Insurance. The secondary insurance policy must be for building coverage on the same building that is currently being insured by the NFIP flood policy.


Your cancellation request must be made within the current NFIP policy year. You’ll need to provide a copy of your non-NFIP flood policy declaration page as well as a statement from the mortgagee accepting the non-NFIP policy as the replacement policy.

You will receive a pro-rated refund on any unused portion of the ICC premium, Reserve Fund Assessment, and HFIAA Surcharge. If applicable, you will not get a refund on the Federal Policy Fee and Probation Surcharge. Customers can only receive a refund for unused portions of their current NFIP policy and will not receive any refunds for past years that the policy was held.
