In accordance with Executive Order 202.13 and related Regulations issued by the New York Department of Financial Services, and in line with ERIE’s commitment to being Above all in Service, ERIE is offering certain accommodations for New York Customers affected by the COVID-19 crisis. We hope that these measures will be helpful during this difficult time.
Policyholders must meet specific criteria set forth in the Order and related Emergency Regulations:
ERIE will be mailing a letter to Policyholders who may be eligible to qualify for the grace period and premium deferment accommodation.
If you are an affected Customer who needs to temporarily defer your payment, please be advised that you are ultimately responsible for paying your premiums.
If you have a question about how to start a claim or need to speak with a representative about a previously reported claim, please call (800) 367-3743 for support 24/7.
Although not specifically addressed in the Emergency Order or Regulation, ERIE is also granting extensions on any policy provisions or other requirements that impose a time limit for an insured or claimant to perform any act, including submission of a claim, proof of loss or reporting information.
Additionally, if repairs on an affected property cannot be completed within the time period required under any policy, ERIE will provide the Customer with at least a 60-day extension. This includes repairs requested by ERIE’s underwriting department as a condition of the renewal of a policy.
