Our Mission is three fold:
- Educate the existing and prospective adjusting community in order to provide the finest service to policyholders and increase the flood adjuster workforce. Provide recurring training to those adjusters.
- Develop standard and consistent best practices for flood claims adjusting that all WYO’s, NFIP Direct, FEMA, and the policyholders can rely on – through open collaboration of all parties involved.
- Provide a forum for all stakeholders to come together to discuss new ideas, and solutions that will benefit all segments of the flood insurance industry.
Why Was FloodPCA Established?
For years, the adjusting community has stood by while new legislation was enacted, FEMA bulletins and guidelines concerning adjusting and the claims process was introduced, and insurance carriers established their own separate version of procedures and coverage interpretations. The adjusting community would have to produce many different products to satisfy the requirements of their clients. If the lessons from Superstorm Sandy have taught us anything, it is that the needs of the policyholder have changed significantly and rapidly over the past 4 years.
