Flood – Understanding the Basics

Civil money penalties continued to be assessed for violations of the Flood Disaster Protection Act (FDPA) even though the basic regulatory requirements have remained the same for a number of years. Bottom line, adequate flood insurance is required to be in place when a MIRE (Make, Increase, Renew, or Extent) event occurs and the structure securing the loan is in a special flood hazard area. And on top of that, if the borrowers drop their flood insurance your institution must force place in a timely manner.

The components of an effective flood compliance management program include timely ordering of the determination; action steps when collateral is in a special flood hazard area; fulfilling notice requirements; and evaluating flood policies. Join us as we discuss the requirements of the FDPA so that you can ensure there are no leaks in your institution’s flood compliance program!
