Hurricane information

Atlantic hurricane season

The Atlantic hurricane season can be a critical time for communities, businesses and governments in the Caribbean and heavily populated coastal states in the United States. 

Running from 1 June to 30 November, it covers the area of the Atlantic Basin, including the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico.

Since the turn of the century, there have been over 50 major hurricanes, a Category 3 tropical cyclone on the Saffir-Simpson scale, affecting the Atlantic Basin, which includes hurricane Katrina in 2005.

General policyholder enquiries

 If you're a Lloyd's policyholder and have a question about your policy you should contact the insurance agency or brokerage that produced it.

Information for policyholders

The Corporation of Lloyd’s is the service provider to and regulator of a market of independent insurers, called underwriting syndicates.

Business comes to the underwriting syndicates that operate in the Lloyd’s market in London through retail and wholesale insurance intermediaries in the US. Underwriting syndicates at Lloyd’s insure risk on their own account, keep their own records, and make their own arrangements for handling claims locally.

For that reason we are not able to answer questions about individual policies.

If you're a Lloyd's policyholder and have a question about your policy or need to make a claim, you should contact your insurance agent or broker or the party named on the Declarations page of the policy as being responsible for handling claims.

If you're interested in obtaining insurance at Lloyd’s, you should contact an independent agent or broker.
