Payment Plans

Policyholders/applicants can pay for their policy in two payments. TWIA must receive 50% or more of the premium to issue or renew the policy. The remaining balance will be due in four months from the policy effective date. TWIA will mail policyholders their policy packet upon receipt of the first payment and a notice when it is time to make the second payment.

Once the policyholder/applicant chooses a payment plan, they cannot change it for the remainder of their policy term. The agent can submit the first payment on behalf of the policyholder/applicant. The policyholder/applicant must make the second payment by an approved payment method.

Credit Card Processing Company

What Happens After Payment Submission: Policyholders/applicants will receive confirmation of their payment submission on the third-party website and via a confirmation email. The payment will be applied to the policyholder's TWIA account approximately 24 hours after payment submission. Policies will be processed according to TWIA underwriting guidelines.

Payment Fees: The credit card processing company charges a convenience fee of 1.99-2.99% of the premium amount. The specific percentages are outlined in the table below. TWIA does not receive any funds from these fees. The fees are non-refundable.
