Latest edition of the NFIP Claims Manual
The Claims Manual
The Latest addition of the Claims Manual is effective 10/2021, a link to the manual is listed below.
Purpose The purpose of the NFIP Claims Manual is to improve clarity of claims guidance to WYOs, vendors, adjusters, and examiners so that policyholders experience consistent and reliable service. The manual provides processes for handling claims from the notice of loss to final payment. All NFIP bulletins, other than those announcing Flood Insurance Claims Office numbers, Flood Response Office locations, claims adjuster briefings, and current and future program changes, are superseded by this manual and of no further effect.

FEMA made corrections throughout the entire document to sentence structure, capitalization, acronyms, formatting (font, paragraphs, spacing, bullets, numbering, etc.), plain language, word choice, grammar, punctuation, and repetitiveness.
