How do I terminate my participation in the automatic payments program?

To terminate your participation in the automatic payments program, please go to Make a Payment and log into the Customer Portal. On the Policies screen, find the policy you wish to remove automatic payments from and click the Yes/No button under Automatic payments. A confirmation box will appear, review the policy number to ensure you selected the correct policy and then click confirm.

Your enrollment termination must be received at least 5 business days prior to your scheduled withdrawal in order to be effective for that installment. Once your enrollment termination is processed, your policy will be endorsed to direct bill and you will begin to receive invoices for each installment due. Your payment plan will be assigned according to the direct bill payment option that most resembles your previous automatic payment plan, which may result in an increase in your scheduled payments. Please note that a 12 pay plan is not offered for direct bill, if you were enrolled in the automatic 12 pay plan you will be assigned to the direct bill 10 pay plan.

How will my audit premium be withdrawn once my audit is completed?

Audit premium generated on auditable commercial lines policies will be automatically withdrawn within 30 days of the completion of the audit process. A notice will be mailed prior to withdrawal. If the audit premium generated is more than $15,000, the audit premium will not be automatically withdrawn. An invoice will be mailed within 30 days of the completion of the audit process.

What if my payment is returned due to insufficient funds?

If your payment is returned due to insufficient funds, a $15 insufficient funds charge will be applied to your account. You must replace the returned payment (including the insufficient funds charge) prior to the next scheduled withdrawal. Failure to replace the payment will result in removal from automatic payments program. If two or more of your payments are returned due to insufficient funds within a twelve month period, you will be ineligible to continue participating in the automatic payments program. You will only be eligible to re-enroll after twelve additional months have elapsed and your policy is within the enrollment window timeframe mentioned above.

Can I change the dates of my withdrawals?

The withdrawal date is determined by the effective date of your policy. For policies ending in P2018 or later, changes to the withdraw date can be completed via the Customer Portal. These changes are restricted to twice in a twelve month period. For all other policies the withdrawal date cannot be changed. For example, a policy that is effective on January 5th will have each installment withdrawn on the 5th day of each month according to your selected payment plan. For all policies; if your withdrawal date falls on a weekend or holiday, your payment will be withdrawn on the next business day. If your withdrawal date falls on the 29th, 30th, or 31st of the month, your payment will be withdrawn on the first business day of the following month.

Will I be notified of each installment withdrawal?

After your enrollment is processed, you will receive one notice explaining future payment amounts and dates. If you select either the semi-annual or quarterly payment plan options, you will receive a withdrawal reminder prior to each installment being withdrawn. You will receive an email confirmation after each successful installment withdrawal. Please note that if you are enrolled in Automatic Payments 12 pay you will not receive a monthly invoice, unless there is a change to the installment amount (endorsement or other premium-altering transaction). For policies ending in P2018 or later, you will receive a paper notification prior to each withdraw.
