FEMA Extends Grace Period for Flood Insurance Renewal Premiums
To help serve its National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) customers who may be experiencing financial hardships, FEMA is extending the grace period to renew flood insurance policies from 30 to 120 days. This extension applies to NFIP flood insurance policies with an expiration date between Feb. 13 and June 15, 2020. There is typically a 30-day grace period to renew policies to avoid a lapse in coverage. However, due to the widespread economic disruption arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, FEMA recognizes that flood insurance policyholders may not meet the standard policy renewal deadline.
