​​Calculating your a​nnual premium

Your annual premium (AP) is based on:

  • Base premium rate
  • Guaranteed value (GV)
  • Discounts and surcharges (D or S)

The premium is calculated using this formula:

AP = base premium rate x GV x D or S​

Base premiu​​m rate

The base premium rate is determined at renewal time each year. It may change due to factors like past performance of the plan, changes to claim ​​prices and the level of the Production Insurance Fund​​.

Guarante​ed value

Your guaranteed valu​​e is determined by multiplying your guaranteed production by your selected claim price.

Discounts and​​ surcharges​

If you have been enrolled in a Production Insurance plan for more than one year, your premium rate may be discounted or surcharged. Discounts and surcharges are determined by comparing your individual claim ​​​rate to the claim rate for the crop plan as a whole.​​

Please refer to the Discounts and Surcharges feature sheet. 

​Premium de​posit

Since your total premium is not calcul​ated until the spring, a premium deposit is required to secure your coverage over the winter.

The minimum premium deposit is $100 per crop.

If you are returnin​g to t​​​he plan

Your premium deposit is 25 percent of the premium you paid last year for each crop.

If you are new to t​he plan​​, or adding a new crop

Your premium deposit is 25 percent of an estimated premium, which is based on your estimated underwritten value at the time of application.

​Premium deposits are not refunded if you later decide to cancel your coverage.

Premium rates are calculated in the spring based on the final claim price. If the final claim price reduces your premium, the difference will be rebated to you. ​
