Tips to help you report claims.

Report in a Timely Manner

If you think you may have a loss, contact your agent immediately. Policy provisions require you to report a claim within 72 hours after discovery of damage, but no later than 15 days after harvest of the unit.

Prepare for a Claim or Audit Review with Accurate Record Keeping

  • Keep scale tickets and settlement sheets organized by unit. 
  • Using soft records such as load logs or monitor records are acceptable to divide out your settlement sheets or bin measurements by unit.
  • If storing grain, receive approval from an adjuster to mark your bins.
  • If feeding grain, getting a bin measured prior to feeding is recommended.

Aflatoxin and Other Quality Adjustments

  • Contact your agent at the first sign of grain quality issues.
  • Samples must be taken from the field by an adjuster.

Chopping, Baling or Abandoning Crops

  • You must be approved by an insurance company adjuster before chopping, baling or abandoning your crop. Failure to receive approval from an adjuster could result in a loss of your claim.

Revenue Claims

  • Keep production records accurate and separate by unit to prepare for potential claim.
  • Remember revenue loss claims have to be filed within 45 days following the announcement of harvest prices.

Commingling Production

  • Commingling grain from several units requires a bin marking or load log to document production per unit. 
  • If you plan on commingling grain from past years, contact your agent before harvest begins.
