The Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation (SCIC) is reminding producers April 30, is the deadline to enrol in the 2014 AgriStability Program and pay program fees, without penalty.
To remain enrolled, participants have until April 30, or 30 days from the date on their Enrolment/Fee Notice, whichever is later, to pay their program fee without penalty. If program fees are not paid by the deadline date, a 20 per cent penalty is added, which must be paid by December 31.
Producers that want to participate in AgriStability for the first time or wish to re-join the Program must request a New Participant Package by April 30. Participants who wish to cancel their participation in AgriStability must also do so by April 30, or 30 days from the date on their Enrolment/Fee Notice, whichever is later.
Producers can access local, knowledgeable staff to help with the AgriStability Program, through any of the 21 Crop Insurance offices across Saskatchewan, or by contacting a program advisor. Producers can review their Enrolment/Fee Notice on AgConnect.
