Get a payment

​​​​​A payment is made if a crop’s market price f​​alls below your annual support level.

Pricing periods

Payments are calculated in two prici​​ng periods:

Pre-harvest pay​​ments will be issued after all pre-harvest pricing periods end, if the market price for an enrolled crop is below your support level. Pre-harvest market prices are based on the average of forward contract prices or future delivery prices for six months before the harvest of each major crop.

Post-harvest payments will be issued ​after all post-harvest pricing periods end, if the market price for an enrolled crop is below your support level. Post-harvest market prices are based on the average of cash or spot prices for six months during and after harvest.

  • The program was redesigned t​o ensure all producers have equal access to the available funding.

  • Payments are calculated u​​sing an interim rate as shown on your payment summary.

See payment periods and price sources on the Rates page for ​​sources and timing of market prices.

See How your payments work – RMP: Grains and Oilseeds ​for ​more detailed information on payments. 

USAB payments – Unseeded acres also qualify for payments. Unseeded acres that are reported and eligible for payment under Production Insurance are added to your RMP coverage. Payments for unseeded acres are based on your dominant crop. If the market price for that crop drops below your chosen support level, you would receive a program payment. USAB payments are calculated the same as payments for planted acres.​
