Customer Responsibilities

As a contract holder, you are sent a Confirmation of Insurance listing the insurance selections you made the previous year. Your contract will remain the same for the current crop year unless you make changes.

The deadline to make changes for all Crop Insurance programs is March 31 of the insurable year. Premiums are charged on acres seeded to crops selected for insurance. There is no charge for endorsing crops you do not grow.

If you wish to cancel your Crop Insurance contract, SCIC requires notification in writing by March 31. The cancellation notification must contain the signatures of all parties named on the contract. Contracts with four years of no premium earned will automatically cancel.

Forage: All newly insured stands of perennial forage or sweetclover must be established before liability is accepted. These acres should be reported, by March 31, by contacting your local SCIC office. Land can be added after the deadline, but the forage crop on those acres must be endorsed by the deadline to be insurable. All new acres will be inspected.
