ABSTRACT
The article examines the proof of loss (POL) requirement which is a legal challenge facing flood insurance claimants under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The origin of the NFIP is given which provides a government-subsidized Standard Flood Insurance Policy (SFIP) managed by the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The consequences of failure to understand the requirement and strict deadline of POL are discussed.
