7/18/2022 Update: Effective July 18, 2022, Wellington no longer provides premium financing services. Visit www.twia.org/payments to learn about other payment options.
The Wellington Residential Interest-Free 10-Pay Plan (“The Wellington 10-Pay Plan”) is a temporary payment plan for TWIA residential policies. Policyholders on this plan pay 25% of their premium when the policy is issued, and the remaining premium amount is spread evenly over the next nine months. All payments are interest-free.
The Wellington 10-Pay Plan will only be available until the second quarter of this year when TWIA will implement a significant systems upgrade. As part of the systems upgrade, TWIA will begin offering 10-Pay, 4-Pay, and 2-Pay plans that will all be interest-free. TWIA’s payment plans will not require the use of a premium finance company.
Any policyholder who uses the temporary Wellington Residential Interest-Free 10-Pay Plan will stay on the payment plan until their next policy renewal. Once it is time to renew their policy, they can switch to TWIA’s permanent 10-Pay plan if they wish to continue a similar payment schedule.
How to Use the Wellington Residential Interest-Free 10-Pay Plan for Policy Payment
Speak to your agent if you are a current or prospective TWIA policyholder interested in the temporary Wellington Residential Interest-Free 10-Pay Plan.
The process to finance a policy through the Wellington Residential Interest-Free 10-Pay Plan is the same as the existing Wellington Premium Finance process. Policyholders are still required to sign Wellington’s Premium Finance Agreement.
Using the temporary Wellington Residential Interest-Free 10-Pay Plan
