11.10.2020 – Next Insurance has lifted the moratorium placed on 10/28 due to Hurricane Zeta. This moratorium affected their property products (including Inland Marine and Commercial Auto due to Physical Damage coverage) in AL, GA, LA, and MS. However, due to Hurricane Eta, Florida will continue under a moratorium binding all Next property products in Florida.

10.28.20 – Next Insurance Moratorium: Due to Hurricane Zeta approaching, we need to implement a moratorium on binding all Property products (including Inland Marine and Commercial Auto due to Physical Damage coverage).

This will affect Inland Marine and Commercial Auto in AL, FL, GA, LA, and MS. The moratorium will go into effect today (10/28) and will be in place until the storm associated increase in risk has passed.

Hurricane Laura caused many carriers to issue moratoriums in TX, LA and up the East coast the last week of August. All were lifted within a couple days and open for quoting & binding again.

Here's a quick look at how we can help you grow your agency fast.
