On December 7, 2012, the Delaware Department of Insurance issued Bulletin No. 58 reminding insurers writing residential policies incepting or renewing on or after January 1, 2013 that policies must include a prominent and specific notice regarding applicable hurricane deductibles. The Bulletin indicates that in the wake of Hurricane Irene and storm Sandy, many Delaware residents were unaware of the separate deductible for wind/hail or hurricane. The required language results from Delaware State Senate Bill No. 202, as amended by Senate Amendment No. 1 (a copy of which is included in the Bulletin), and will go into effect on January 1, 2013.
