FEMA Renews its Reinsurance Program to Manage Future Flood Risk

FEMA - News - Wed, 01/30/2019 - 11:15

WASHINGTON - Continuing its risk management practice against future catastrophic flood losses, FEMA announced today its 2019 traditional reinsurance placement for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

Reinsurance is a financial risk management tool used by private insurance companies and public entities to protect themselves from large financial losses. If a catastrophic flood event occurs, the reinsurance companies cover a portion of the NFIP’s losses, reducing FEMA’s need to borrow from the U.S. Treasury to pay claims.
