Can Flood Re help me?
If your home is at risk of flooding then we’re already working in the background to help you. We’re helping the insurance industry to offer affordable insurance to everyone owning or living in eligible properties that may be prone to flooding.
How does Flood Re work?
- We collect an annual tax from every home insurer in the UK
- That tax contributes £180m to a fund each year that we manage centrally
- Your insurer passes on the flood risk part of your policy to us, so you don’t have to do a thing
- We then take responsibility for that part of your policy and if you make a valid claim on your insurance we’ll reimburse the insurer from the central Flood Re fund.
With this support from us, insurers should be able to provide more competitive pricing on their policies. Over time, we estimate that Flood Re will benefit over 350,000 households by having access to those more affordable policies.
