The endorsement is available to qualifying homes in low-to-moderate risk areas. For just a few dollars per month, you can add inland flood coverage to your existing Northern Neck Insurance homeowner, dwelling fire, condo, and mobile home policy. Bundling your policy can help you save money while staying protected.

One size does not fit all.
Inland homes in low-to-moderate risk areas are typically not covered by federal flood insurance. But flooding affects inland homes for many reasons, including heavy rain, snowmelt, overflowing streams, and bad drainage areas. In fact, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), from 2014 to 2018, policyholders outside of high-risk flood areas filed over 40% of all flood insurance claims.
