FEMA is extending the grace period for payment of NFIP flood premiums due to COVID-19. For policies with an expiration between February 13th, 2020 and June 15th, 2020, FEMA has extended the grace period for receipt of renewal premium payments from 30 to 120 days. This extension allows customers additional time to pay their flood premiums to avoid any lapse or reduction in flood coverage. As long as payment is received in Selective’s offices within 120 days after the expiration date on these policies, no lapse in coverage will occur.
