National Flood Insurance Program Changes May Increase Premiums

Key provisions of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 (BW-12) are beginning to be phased in including the elimination of some of the artificially low rates and discounts that many local homeowners currently enjoy.  This change in law may result in some policyholders having their subsidy eliminated.  Specifically, the legislation will require rates to increase to reflect true flood risk and to help make the program more financially stable. The changes will mean premium rate increases for some – but not all -- policyholders over time.
 Not everyone will be affected immediately by the new law – only 20 percent of National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) policies receive subsidies. Contact your insurance agent to help you understand if your policy is impacted by the changes and if it it could affect your policy premium.

In order to determine the new insurance rate for each property, insurance companies are requiring Elevation Certificates.  To obtain an Elevation Certificate, the property owner needs to hire a surveyor. Anyone needing assistance finding a surveyor can contact the Engineering Department at (847) 671-8304 . The Elevation Certificate will demonstrate the risk of flooding for the building. Once the Elevation Certificate is obtained, it is recommended that the property owner provide the Engineering Department a copy. The Elevation Certificate will be placed in the file for the property and the engineers will review it to determine if they believe the building can be removed from the floodplain.
