New FEMA Flood Insurance Denial Letter Requirements
FEMA has issued updated flood insurance denial letter requirements to help policyholders better understand why the Standard Flood Insurance Policy (SFIP) may not cover all or part of their claims.
On October 16, 2017 FEMA issued Bulletin W-17013a which mandates standard elements for all SFIP denial letters. According to FEMA, these requirements are meant to improve the policyholder experience by providing a plain-language description and standardized information about their denial.
