Policy Moratorium in Effect for Hurricane Beryl

Hurricane Beryl is within the 80 degrees west longitude and 20 degrees north latitude, which requires TWIA to put a policy moratorium in effect. 

With the current storm trajectory, Hurricane Beryl is expected to impact TWIA’s coverage area. 

What happens when a policy moratorium is in effect?

  • TWIA cannot issue new policies or increase coverage on existing policies or renewals. 
  • Agents cannot quote and submit new business applications or policy changes.
  • Renewals can be issued by making a payment if:
    • There are no increases in coverage.
    • The due date has not passed. 

When does a policy moratorium go into effect?
When there’s a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico. For more information, visit our Moratoriums page.

What happens when a policy moratorium is lifted?

  • TWIA will begin accepting applications and payments at 12:01 a.m. the next day.
  • Policy moratoriums are lifted when the TWIA General Manager determines the storm no longer threatens property anywhere within the TWIA coverage area. 
  • We will notify you through an agent bulletin when the policy moratorium is lifted.
