Note that CCRIF will continue to provide earthquake coverage in Haiti for the remainder of the insurance year ending May 31, 2022, under a special feature of the policy known as Recovery. of insured coverage (RSIC). Which since 2017 allows access to coverage even after the maximum coverage limit of a country has been reached.
