Flood Insurance

Banner for Flood Insurance page reading "Considering Flood Insurance"

Did you know most homeowner’s policies do not cover flood insurance?

Unless you’ve specifically purchased flood insurance, you are probably not covered against flood losses. You’re not alone; most Montanans aren't covered. The good news is that flood insurance is available in most parts of Montana through the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

Private flood insurance may be available and may be more affordable than National Flood Insurance. Contact your local insurance agent or check out the links below to learn more.
