Insurance Moratorium

Hurricane season starts on June 1 and runs through the end of November for the Central Pacific Region. Hawaii residents should make preparations ahead of time to avoid or minimize potential impacts.

Should a tropical storm or hurricane warning be issued for the State of Hawaii by the National Weather Service, a moratorium will immediately take effect. The moratorium includes the following:

  • No new personal homeowners or personal auto insurance policies will be taken.
  • No new commercial property or commercial auto insurance policies will be taken.
  • No increases in values and limits will be allowed for existing in-force policies.
  • No changes in deductibles or adding of physical damage (when there was no such coverage previously) will be allowed.

These guidelines will remain in effect until DTRIC issues a specific date and time for the lifting of the moratorium.
