NEW JERSEY

Effective April 9, 2020, no policies can be cancelled or non-renewed due to nonpayment of premiums. This moratorium is in effect for 90 days or until otherwise amended. This moratorium is not a waiver of premium, just a "grace" period for the insured. Cancellations due to other underwriting reasons are still acceptable.
