Changes to Federal Crop Insurance due to COVID-19

Due to COVID-19, the USDA Risk Management Agency, authorized additional flexibility to producers who are using federal crop insurance. Changes include: allowing policyholders to submit electronic notifications for production reporting etc., an extension of production reporting dates, and allowing policyholders additional time to make premium payments.

As always policyholders should communicate with their crop insurance agent about any concerns they may have.
