Risk Rating 2.0 Pricing in Hawaii.
FEMA's flood program through the NFIP has begun using a new pricing methodology, Risk Rating 2.0. This will result in a price change for 96% of policyholders. This will impact nearly all of the 61,400 NFIP policies in force in Hawaii.
New NFIP Policyholders can expect to see these changes October 1st, 2021. If you're an existing policyholder, these rate changes won't affect you until April 1st, 2022.*
If you already have a policy through the NFIP, be sure to compare the Risk Rating 2.0 price to a Private Flood Insurance quote. You could possibly save hundreds of dollars. The time to start comparing prices on your flood insurance is before your policy is set to renews.
The NFIP does not allow mid-term cancellations. This means that once your policy renews, you have no option to cancel it unless you meet very restrictive guidelines, such as the sale of your home. The process can be difficult and frustrating. Here is a link to the guidelines to cancel an NFIP policy mid-term: FEMA Cancellation Form.
What is not covered by the NFIP?
Debris removal, additional living expenses, and belongings located in your basement, aren't covered. You would be required to purchase a secondary policy to cover appurtenant structures, such as a detached garage or shed. Visit their website to see everything that is, or isn't, covered by the NFIP.
If you'd like to be free from these limitations and have more options for coverage, consider getting flood insurance from FloodPrice,
