  National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) 

FEMA launched a National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) call center pilot program to serve and support policyholders with the servicing of their claims. 

The NFIP call center can be reached at 1-800-621-3362, and will operate from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (CDT) Monday through Friday. Specialists will be available to assist policyholders with their claims, provide general information regarding their policies, and/or offer technical assistance to aid in recovery.


Call center staff will be able to answer questions such as "How do I file a flood insurance claim?, What type of documentation is needed?, Can I still obtain disaster assistance even though I have a flood policy?" as well as more complicated insurance questions about the extent of coverage, policy ratings, and more. The call center will also be open to disaster survivors who have general questions about the NFIP.


Disaster survivors and policyholders are asked to have the following information available when contacting the call center:

- Contact information (Name, telephone number, email address if applicable);

- Policy number;

- Address of damaged property; and

- Name of flood insurance carrier.
