In February, MASC releases its lists of dollar values and insurable varieties for eligible crops.
If you held a AgriInsurance contract in the previous year, you should receive a Confirmation of Insurance package (by mail) early in the crop year that lists your previously selected crops, coverage levels and selected AgriInsurance programs (and a 'Crop Management History' package that recaps your cropping information for up to the past 5 years). If you don't want to make any changes, the previous year's selections will remain in effect.
If you need to change or cancel your AgriInsurance contract, or file a claim on the previous year's crop (with late fees), or add new land to your contract to be eligible for Excess Moisture Insurance (EMI), or make changes to your AgriInsurance program selections, you must do so by March 31
of the crop year. Please confirm in person, by fax, or by phone with your local MASC Insurance office
Crops must be seeded by the dates specified in MASC's seeding deadlines. If you need more time, certain crops have an 'extended seeding period', though a 20% coverage reduction applies if a crop is seeded during this period.
In May, you should receive a Seeded Acreage Report (SAR) package (by mail or email).
You must complete and submit your SAR
to MASC by June 30
, either by mail, at your local Insurance office, or online if you've previously signed up for MASC Online Services.
In August, a Harvested Production Report (HPR) package will be mailed or emailed to you.
You must complete and submit your HPR
to MASC by November 30
, by mail, in person at your local Insurance office, or online via MASC Online Services.
