FREE Homeowners & Flood Insurance Workshop: Sheepshead Bay
Wed, May 3, 2017, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM EDT
"Every homeowner knows what they pay for homeowners insurance. In this workshop, they learn what they're paying FOR (and what they're not)." --Elizabeth Malone
In this FREE, small-group workshop, insurance specialist Elizabeth Malone of nonprofit NHS Brooklyn will:
provide an overview of homeowner's insurance and flood insurance, and how to calculate them property
look at each homeowner's policy to determine if he or she is over-insured (and so paying too much) or under-insured (and so at risk of an ugly surprise if an uncovered event occurs).
look up each homeowner's address on the new FEMA flood maps to determine if the property's flood insurance requirements have changed
let each homeowner know if he or she may wish to contact their insurance agent to request a policy adjustment. If a homeowner's policy premium is lowered, the homeowner's mortgage payment usually also goes down.
Please bring your homeowner's insurance policy to the workshop, and your flood insurance policy as well, if you have one.
