Changes in the flood insurance marketplace are continuing, offering new opportunities for you to serve your customers. As carriers leave the market we want to assure you that PIA’s national flood partner, The Hartford, is here to stay and is one of the largest flood insurance writers in the country, through the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA’s) National Flood Insurance Program. The Hartford wants to be your go-to flood market for both Personal Lines and Commercial Lines. Their dedicated flood sales and transfer teams want to earn your business by making it easy to do business and providing exceptional service for both you and your customers.

Since 2004, PIA and The Hartford have joined together to provide PIA member agents the opportunity to offer their customers flood insurance through The Hartford, a premier WYO company. The program is available to PIA members and their policyholders in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

The Hartford offers extremely competitive commissions to PIA members and two plan offerings:

  • The Standard program includes a web-based application process with the agency doing the customer service administration with Internet and live customer service support.
  • The Flood Solutions program includes a streamlined application process with The Hartford’s Flood Insurance Processing Center doing most of the work. Flood Solutions simplifies the writing of flood insurance for the agency.

Your clients count on you to keep them informed of their protection options, and you can count on The Hartford to help.
