BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD)- Due to the recent flooding in the Louisiana area, many residents have group Flood Insurance Policies (GFIP) they received as a part of their FEMA assistance from a previous presidentially declared flooding disaster.

If you experienced flooding while covered by a Group Flood Insurance Policy, here are some important things to know:

How to start your claim:

  • Start a claim. Report your loss immediately.
  • Provide receipts to verify that repairs were made following the prior flood loss.
  • Separate damaged and undamaged property.
  • Take pictures of damaged property before disposing.
  • GFIP certificate holders can make a claim by calling the NFIP Direct Call Center at 1-800-638-6620. Select your language and then choose option 2 for the Special Direct Facility.
