The California Insurance Commissioner has determined that in accordance with SB 824, insurance companies cannot cancel or refuse to renew insurance for polices with a 94553 or 94563 zip code for one year from October 27th, 2019. If a policy in these zip codes has been cancelled or non-renewed since that date, the insurer must offer to reinstate them. More information is available here.
