Flood insurance available Sears if you ask agent for it In Downtown Alton PRE-SEASON SALE! By Carlton Smith After seeing news pictures Of all the flood-damaged homes earlier this year, stretching from South Dakota to the Gulf, you probably would have been highly receptive — unless you live in the desert — to a salesman who came around offering $10,0(70 worth of flood insurance for $25 a year. Such Insurance is available at reduced rates that became effective July 10. The only thing is no salesman is going to call. To get this federally subsided > coverage on your home or business, you'll have to dig up an /agent or broker and tell him, "I want it." And, in most area, you won't be able to buy it at all unless the citizens of your community bestir the local political officials to action. To be eligible for the insurance, subsidized by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, e n c h city, county or other local body must join a program by meeting certain standards of land-use laws. Though it's not difficult to qualify, only about 1.200 communities in the nation have done so. Authorities say some 5,000 arc in areas of potential flood damage and should be in the program so that homeowners and businessmen can buy the insurance. But officialdom, in some 60 per cent of these areas, seem to be just sitting there, doing nothing. About 100 insurance companies that write flood policies under the HUD program comprise the National Flood Insurers Association. Wallace Smith, its assistant general manager, suggests that property owners who want flood coverate check with any local agent or broker to find out whether they arc in an eligible community. "If an agent doesn't know, he can find out easily enough," says Smith. "There is in each state a designated service company whose name he can get from the insurance commissioner. If he finds that the community is in the program, he — or any licensed agent or broker — can place policies through the service company." Premiums are the same throughout the country and set on a sliding scale according to the property value. The owner of a single-family dwelling valued at not more than $17,500, for example, pays $25 a year for $10,000 coverage on the house and $18 to insure contents for $5,000. Premiums on the dwelling are $30 for a house valued at $22,000 and $35 on a house valued at $35,000 or more, with premiums on contents Increased accordingly. Agents are encouraged to handle the necessary paperwork with commissions of 15 per cent, a minimum $10 guaranteed. Any local political unit that has jurisdiction over land use can make application to join the program, says Smith. "There are cities in the program, counties, townships, even unincorporated areas of counties." The test is whether the political entity has land use-laws. Local officials initiate action by making application to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. They do, that is, if local homeowners and businessmen prod them enough.
