The WLPIP premium tables reflect the current volatility of the cattle markets. Uncertainty in the markets directly impacts livestock price insurance premiums. COVID-19 and the related interruption in meat processing has impacted commodity markets. This is why premiums have increased significantly since the end of February 2020. The Government of Saskatchewan is providing a rebate of 40 per cent on the premium increase above pre COVID-19 levels.
The Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association (SCA) is contributing up to $1 million to partner with the Government of Saskatchewan in offsetting the impact of COVID-19 on Western Livestock Price Insurance Program (WLPIP) premiums. This will offset an additional eight per cent of the COVID-19 impact on premiums. For more information, view the SCA News Release.

The extended deadline to purchase calf price insurance has now passed. If you have any questions, please contact your local SCIC office.
Payment on Account
SCIC encourages participants to take advantage of convenient options like Payment on Account. With Payment on Account, producers have until the expiration of their policy to complete their premium payment. Interest is charged 15 days after the purchase on the outstanding balance and statements are generated monthly. Producers using the Payment on Account option can purchase a policy online or over the phone with an SCIC representative. To avoid paying interest, producers can pay premiums up front, online, by mail or in person.
