In the fall, you will be mailed a Production Declaration form. Once harvest is complete, file your production information. The deadline to submit your declaration is November 15, and declaration information must be provided before you can register any yield-loss claims. You can phone, mail, fax or drop off the information, and CropConnect customers may complete personalized declarations online.
The Production Declaration serves two important functions for your Crop Insurance contract:
- Production information is used to calculate your annual yield. If you do not complete a Production Declaration, your annual yield will be set at zero, reducing your future coverage by 10 per cent for each year you fail to report.
- Production Declaration information must be submitted before you can register a post-harvest claim and should be filed as soon as you complete harvest. This makes the claim process more efficient, allows us to better allocate our adjusting resources, and improves the customer service you receive.
SCIC verifies a percentage of all declarations.
