Ontario producers who are enrolled in AgriStability and have completed six months of their fiscal year can now apply for an interim payment. Interim payments provide 50 per cent of a producer's estimated final payment.
Producers whose projected income has declined by more than 30 per cent of their average should contact Agricorp if they wish to apply for an interim payment. AgriStability specialists are ready to work through the application process with them. Producers can call Agricorp at 1-888-247-4999 or complete an interim payment application.
In addition, AgriStability participants who are experiencing financial pressure can call Agricorp to ask to have their 2017 Year-end Report and Claim Form placed in priority sequence.
