Communications Timeline
Servicing agents will receive a list of their impacted policyholders in this state one week prior to the start of policyholder notifications. Policyholder notifications will begin September 10, 2019 and will continue throughout the next year. Impacted policyholders will be notified at least 60 days in advance of their billing anniversary dates.

* If we have your email address on file, you will receive an agent notification through email. If you do not receive an email, you will receive a hardcopy notification in the mail.

NOTE: Policyholders currently on claim will still receive a rate increase notification. However, if they are on waiver of premium, the rate increase will not apply until the premium is no longer waived and becomes due.
 
Policyholders are encouraged to call our Customer Service Team at 877-710-0817. Our team will be able to answer questions and provide policyholders with information about how they may be able to reduce premiums.
