BB&T Adds Flood Insurance To Its Online Offerings

RALEIGH, N.C., June 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BB&T Insurance Services today has added flood insurance to its suite of online products. It is the first insurance broker in the nation to offer and sell flood insurance online in real time.

Flooding is the No. 1 natural disaster in the United States, yet most homeowners do not have flood insurance protection for their homes and personal possessions. Experts say it takes only a few inches of water to cause thousands of dollars in damage. Protecting your home before the rainy season is a good idea for those in flood-risk areas.

"Fortunately, it's easy and inexpensive to protect your home and belongings from floodwater damage by purchasing flood insurance online," said Chief Insurance Marketing Officer Manager Randy Screen. "You can get a quote, make your purchase and be covered in approximately 30 days. We continue to offer choices to consumers for their insurance needs, whether they meet with us in person at one of our agencies, by phone, or through our website."

BB&T writes and services flood insurance coverage directly through The Hartford, a participating Write Your Own insurance company of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). A policy normally takes 30 days from the date of purchase to go into effect. For more information, visit www.insurance.bbt.com or to speak to a BB&T flood insurance specialist at 800-228-6978.

BB&T also offers online auto, homeowners, renters, travel and pet insurance.

All personal insurance products at Insurance.BBT.com provide dedicated customer service numbers and are underwritten and serviced by insurance companies rated A (Excellent) or A- (Excellent) by A.M. Best.
