District of Columbia Property Insurance Facility

Welcome to the District of Columbia Property Insurance Facility (DCPIF) website.

The District of Columbia Property Insurance Facility (DCPIF) originally was formed in response to the requirements of the federal legislation called "Fair Access to Insurance Requirements". District of Columbia statutes provide the basis for the continuing operations of the DCPIF, however the DCPIF is not a City agency. The DCPIF is supported by all licensed property insurance carriers writing in the District of Columbia.

For those individuals and businesses who are unable to obtain essential property insurance on dwellings, business property or Homeowners through the competitive property/casualty insurance marketplace they can apply to the DCPIF for insurance.

An applicant can apply for insurance offered by the DCPIF through licensed property/casualty insurance Producers, or may apply directly to the DCPIF for coverage.

The District of Columbia Property Insurance Facility does not have a rating by any financial rating organization, such as A.M. Best Company, due to our being a F.A.I.R. Plan. The law requires that all insurers licensed to write property insurance in the District of Columbia become a member of the Facility.
