Application for municipal financial aid: Flooding 2021

On June 4, 2021, you may have been the victim of flooding caused by heavy rainfall in our city.

First of all, it is important to contact your insurance company in order to declare the entire damage and to proceed, if necessary, to an adaptation of your insurance coverage.

In order to support the households most affected by the floods, the city of Differdange is committed to financially participate in the damages that are not reimbursed by your insurance, under the condition that you send in the online form below duly completed with the requested supporting documents until September 15, 2021. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Additional Information

Since 2017, the ACA (Luxembourg insurance and reinsurance association) offers an optional, voluntary and fee-based guarantee with a maximum insured amount of 200,000 euros per claim and per year.

Please contact your insurance company to obtain detailed information on the applicable conditions and insured amounts.

Insurance companies distinguish between the following three cases of water damage:

  • Infiltration

Water seepage through roofs, terraces and balconies and seepage due to defective joints around bathtubs and showers

  • Overflow

Accidental overflows from non-underground water supply, distribution or drainage pipes, central heating installations and all fixed water-effect appliances, aquariums as well as washing machines or dishwashers.

  • Flooding

Climatic peril linked to the overflow of water due to the flooding of rivers, intense, long and extended rain showers, snow or ice melting following a sudden rise in temperature.
