How do I know if I’m in a claim position for my livestock insurance?

Glad You Asked

When you purchase livestock price insurance, your settle period (claim window) opens during the last four weeks of your policy. You can determine if you're in a claim position by monitoring weekly settlement prices during this period.

Each Monday, the settlement prices for the previous week are published online. If the settlement price is below the insured price of your policy, you're eligible to submit a claim for a portion or all of your insured weight during claim hours.

If you decide not to make a claim in the first three weeks of your claim window, the system will automatically settle your policy in the fourth and final week using that week's settlement prices. We encourage producers to check their policy and settlement prices before the expiration date.
