Selective Insurance:
Your Flood Market of Choice

Floods are the most common natural disaster and they can happen even in low risk zones. The cost of flood damage to homes, commercial buildings and the contents inside those structures can quickly add up and is typically not covered by personal or commercial insurance policies. 

Through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), Selective offers building and contents coverage for both homes and businesses in all 50 states.

Long-term Partnerships

Selective has participated in the NFIP Write Your Own (WYO) program since 1984 and partnered with the Big "I" since 2001.  Selective, rated A+ (Superior) by AM Best, was one of the first companies to join the NFIP and is now the fourth-largest NFIP WYO carrier.
