Flood insurance

Crop insurance

Some crop insurance policies cover flood damage. These are sold by private insurance companies and regulated by the federal Risk Management Agency. Most policies require you to file a claim within 72 hours of discovering crop damage. If you have damage, contact your crop insurance agent as soon as possible, or contact the Risk Management Agency at or call 202-690-2803.

We can help
