Premium financing allows customers to leverage their insurance assets (unearned portion of premiums) over the coverage term by funding the annual policy premium to the insurance company and extending monthly terms to the insured. Terms typically involve a down payment and up to 9 installments.
We accommodate payments in a variety of ways. Payments by check, faxed checks, electronic debits and payments by phone are all possible.
WHAT IS PREMIUM FINANCE
What is It
Premium financing provides a short term loan for an insured to use specifically to pay for their insurance coverage. The loan provided by the premium finance company pays the insurance premium to the insurance company and bills the individual or company, usually in monthly installments, for the cost of the loan.
The unearned premiums on the insurance policy acts as collateral simplifying the loan application/approval process.
How does premium financing work?
An insured who wants or needs financing to cover a policy signs a finance agreement.
A down payment is collected for the loan
The insurance company is paid by the premium finance company
The insured repays the finance company for the loan
Eliminates the requirement to pay the insurance company up-front
Multiple insurance policies can be financed on a single finance contract, allowing for a single payment plan to cover all insurance coverage
Frees up liquid assets for the customer
