Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC) rules require accurate and timely reporting. FCIC rules implement severe penalties for misreported liability. Your liability is determined by the acreage shown on your report. 

A Few Reminders to Help You Report Correctly

  • A multi-peril crop insurance (MPCI) policy requires you to report all acreage of crops, both insurable and uninsurable, in which you have a share. This also includes prevented and late planted acreage. 
  • Added land must be reported with farm numbers, legal descriptions and shares. Please contact your agent as soon as possible prior to July 22 if you have crops planted on land that has not been planted to a crop in the last three years. (Exceptions apply for ground coming out of Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) within the last two years.) A new breaking insurability request must be completed for consideration for insurance. 
  • An acreage report must be signed and submitted for every policy even if you have no share or zero acres to report for 2019. 
  • Providing the initial planting date for each field is required. If any acreage was planted after the final plant date, these acres must be reported separately due to the late plant reduction in guarantee. 
  • Prevented planting (PP) acres need to be shown on your report even though you may have already reported a claim. If you have chosen to file a PP claim, be sure to discuss with your agent and adjuster your options for your total crop plan. 
  • Double check the pre-printed share percentages for each unit to make sure they are still correct. Be sure to note any changes. 
  • Make sure your policy name is consistent with how you are reporting to Farm Service Agency (FSA) and selling your grain.
  • All acreage reports need to be completed, signed, dated and returned to your agent no later than July 22, 2019. The report needs to be signed by the policyholder or authorized representative for the policy or entity. 
  • Any revisions to insured liability after July 22 have to be approved by the insurance provider. In most cases, a request that raises liability after July 22 will be denied. Review the acreage report being submitted for accuracy.
  • A schedule of insurance or summary of coverage will be sent to you after your report has been received and processed. Please review this information and notify us of any errors. Sometimes corrections can be made or requested if an error is determined.
  • Always contact your agent if you have any questions.

Note: Pending claims (replant, PP, etc.) cannot be paid until your acreage report is completed and processed.
