Most companies offer optional modes of payment such as “EFT:Electronic Funds Transfer” that will take systematic withdrawals  from a checking or savings account after the process has been properly established.  Contact us for help with setting this up.

Credit Card Payments are also an option that can be utilized for a “one time” type of transaction or they may allow systematic (monthly) charges to be taken from a credit card account. You may contact our office for additional details or it may be best to go directly to your insurance company site.

You may also bring your check into our office and we can contact the carrier to advise that your payment was received by us.

For your convenience, we have provided links to many insurance company sites that we represent for your use. Each specific carrier offers convenient payment options to their customers and it is most informative to go directly to your specific carrier’s site.

Change in Agency Policy regarding the “Official New York Notice of Cancellation” for non-payment of premium

We want to make our customers aware of a change in policy at Dier Agency Inc that will affect policy holders at both agencies: A. T. Matthews & Dier and Timerman Adams Agency.

The change in procedure involves the “Official New York Notice of Cancellation” and how our agency will respond to the notice generated from the insurance carrier as a result of “non-payment of premium.”

Effective January 1, 2015, we will no longer be sending any additional reminders via mail in the form of a letter of memo in support of that “official notice.” In the past you would have received additional correspondence on agency letterhead as a friendly reminder that coverage would cease if payment was made by a specified date as stated on the “official notice.” That additional measure will cease and will not be forwarded after the effective date of the change.

As a reminder, you will still be receiving your regular billing notice directly from the insurance company and all other official documents as required by your carrier.

Again, this only effects how the agency responds only to the “Official New York Notice of Cancellation” and does not alter any New York State Insurance Department regulations.
