SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Under the Write-Your-Own (WYO) Program Financial Assistance/Subsidy Arrangement (Arrangement), 87 (as of July 1, 2011) private sector property insurers issue flood insurance policies and adjust flood insurance claims under their own names based on an Arrangement with the Federal Insurance Administration (FIA) published at 44 CFR Part 62, appendix A. The WYO insurers receive an expense allowance and remit the remaining premium to the Federal Government. The Federal Government also pays flood losses and pays loss adjustment expenses based on a fee schedule. In addition, under certain circumstances reimbursement for litigation costs, including court costs, attorney fees, judgments, and settlements, are paid by the FIA based on documentation submitted by the WYO insurers. The complete Arrangement is published in 44 CFR Part 62, appendix A. Each year, FEMA is required to publish in the Federal Register and make available to the Companies the terms for subscription or re-subscription to the Arrangement.

There have been no changes to the Arrangement this year.

During August 2011, FEMA will send a copy of the offer for the FY2012 Arrangement, together with related materials and submission instructions, to all private insurance companies participating under the current FY2011 Arrangement. Any private insurance company not currently participating in the WYO Program but wishing to consider FEMA's offer for FY2012 may request a copy by writing: DHS/FEMA, Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration, Attn: Edward L. Connor, WYO Program, 1800 South Bell Street, Room 720, Arlington, VA 20598-3020, or contact Edward Connor at 202-646-3445 (facsimile), or Edward.Connor@dhs.gov (e-mail).
