Rosselló Nevarez, decreed Executive Order No. OE-2017-047 declaring a state of emergency for Puerto Rico, as a consequence of the imminent impact of Hurricane Maria. Later, on September 18th, 2017, President Donald Trump, also issued a state of emergency and ordered federal aid to supplement the local recovery efforts facing Hurricane Maria’s pounding on the Island.
Due to the emergency situation in Puerto Rico caused by the impact of Hurricane Maria, the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance has determined to extend the expiration date of licensing requirements and fees to all bearers of any of the different classes of licenses and authorizations issued by the Commissioner of Insurance.
