August 15, 2020 2018 AND 2019 Data Due from companies
Purpose and Definitions
Insurance regulators in 50 states and the District of Columbia agreed to participate in a data call to collect data related to private flood insurance. The intent of the data call is to provide state regulators with information regarding the size of the private market for flood insurance, particularly as it relates to residential coverage. The size of the private market is of interest due to constraints in federal coverage such as pricing and limits of coverage offered through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), and in order for state regulators, FEMA and the public to understand the growth of the private flood insurance market.
The information contained in each submission was considered non-confidential. The data call was split into two parts, in order to collect private flood insurance data for the data years 2018 and 2019. Subsequently, private flood insurance data will be collected through the NAIC Financial Annual Statement beginning in 2021 with 2020 data. The data obtained through the data call and subsequently collected through the NAIC Financial Annual Statement will be made available to the public.
