INDIANA, (WOWO) – Several counties in Indiana will be granted an additional 60 days to make insurance payments after recent weather events.

Indiana Department of Insurance Commissioner Stephen W. Robertson announced Friday that insurance companies will implement a 60-day cancellation moratorium for any policyholder directly affected by severe weather in the following counties:

  • Benton
  • Carroll
  • Clark
  • Crawford
  • Dearborn
  • Elkhart
  • Floyd
  • Fulton
  • Harrison
  • Jasper
  • Jefferson
  • Lake
  • Marshall
  • Ohio
  • Pulaski
  • Perry
  • Spencer
  • St. Joseph
  • Starke
  • Switzerland
  • Warrick
  • White

In a statement released Friday, Robertson said:

“As Hoosiers affected by the recent weather events struggle to recover from flooding, the last thing they need to worry about is missing a premium payment and losing coverage. We hope granting this extension will help give them some peace of mind.”

After the 60-day extension, the policyholder will need to resume making premium payments or lose coverage; this is not a waiver.
