The Illinois Department of Insurance has issued a bulletin concerning policyholders in Cook, Kane, Lake and McHenry counties who were affected by recent severe weather and storms.    

Moratorium on cancellations and non-renewals

Nationwide will withdraw any notice of cancellation or nonrenewal issued to you on or after July 12, 2017, on any in-force policy issued to an affected policyholder and/or property. In addition, Nationwide will not issue any new cancellation or nonrenewal notices to affected policyholders and/or property until September 30, 2017, or a later time if deemed reasonable given an individual consumer’s circumstance.

Extensions for claims, bills and repairs

If you were affected by the severe weather, you may need extra time to file a claim, provide proof of loss, pay a bill or make repairs. If so, please contact your agent or a Nationwide representative. We may give you an extension of 60 days or longer, depending on your circumstances.
