NAIC Provides Support to Puerto Rico After Hurricanes

WASHINGTON (Sept. 29, 2017) —– Due to power outages and damage from Hurricane Maria, the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) is assisting the Office of the Insurance Commissioner of Puerto Rico with communications to consumers, media and the insurance industry.

A temporary website in English and Spanish contains pertinent resources for consumers and insurers. Those in need of immediate assistance should call 866-874-4905.

"I have issued this immediate directive because it is crucial that priority be given to the claims made by insured persons in sectors key to getting our Island back from the catastrophe caused by Hurricane Maria," Puerto Rico Insurance Commissioner Javier Rivera Ríos said. "We urge these insureds to file as soon as possible the claim of loss or damage to their property and casualty insurer, including photos and/or videos and a detailed inventory of the affected property."
