New Hanover County, NC, September 20, 2016 (Newswire.com) - The Flood Risk Evaluator Team is hosting a community outreach event sponsored by New Hanover County on Thursday, September 22 2016 from 5pm-7pm in the Government Center's Development Services Lobby, located at 230 Government Center Drive, Wilmington NC 28403. This event is free to all members of the community who would like to review their property and insurance information with a Licensed Floodplain Management Professional, in order to receive a cost saving analysis on a case-by-case basis.
FRE's goal is to ensure that all policyholders in floodplains receive the lowest flood insurance premium possible, while also verifying they are in compliance with FEMA and NFIP regulations. A big misconception is that all NFIP insurance is the same and there is nothing you can do too lower your current rate. This is false; there is a multitude of ways to lower it. Whether that is proper mitigation, your current agent misrating you, or being eligible for private flood insurance we will make sure to point this out to you.
"Yes, I finally got my flood insurance lowered...It went from over $1600 to approximately $300/year... Also, they refunded the current year flood policy and sent me a check for $1300! I got paid to install [flood vents]!"
Esmond Carr, Louisiana Homeowner
