FEMA is currently offering new webinars for agents that will focus on the renewal process under Risk Rating 2.0 beginning April 1.
Risk Rating 2.0, FEMA's new pricing methodology for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), went into effect Oct. 1, 2021, for all new policies and offered insureds the option to renew under Risk Rating 2.0 or the existing NFIP framework. However, the NFIP has now moved into Phase II of Risk Rating 2.0, which focuses on transitioning all existing policies. Beginning April 1, 2022, all policies must be priced under Risk Rating 2.0 at renewal.
With April 1 just around the corner, FEMA is currently offering new webinars for agents that will focus on the renewal process under Risk Rating 2.0.
The webinars will cover:
- Necessary rating variables for renewal policies.
- Mitigation discounts available to a policyholder.
- Annual increase cap discount.
- Provisional rates.
- Changes to the lapse in coverage rule.
Agents can sign up for one of the final two March webinars below:
If agents are unable to attend the webinars on the dates in March, FEMA will host sessions on April 6, 12, 19, 21 and 27. Agents can also visit the NFIP website for updates and to access the latest documents for Risk Rating 2.0.
As FEMA continues to provide more information regarding Risk Rating 2.0, the Big “I" will continue to provide members with updates in the weekly News & Views e-newsletter.
