Event description

Description

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:

1. your homeowner's insurance policy (or your property insurance policy, if you live in a coop, condo, or apartment)

2. your flood insurance policy (if you have one)

3. your last mortgage statement (if you have one), so that the instructor can check that the escrow amount is correct

These monthly workshops are hosted by NYC Councilman Chaim Deutsch at his office at 2601 Avenue U in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY 11235.

"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
