Process to cancel current flood policy and request a refund:

  1. Confirm that your property has been placed in a low-risk flood zone (known as Zone X).  See searchable flood map above.  Then determine which FIRM map your property is located in.  See FIRM Panel Maps below.
  2.  Obtain a copy of FEMA's Transmittal Letter of a New Map dated November 16, 2011, see letter above.
  3. Next, send a letter to your Mortgage Company or lender to request a waiver of the flood insurance requirement for your property.  See Sample Letters for your specific FIRM Panel Map: 435H445H 465H (microsoft word documents).
