Payment Plans

Overview: Policyholders/applicants can pay for their policy in one, two, four, or ten payments. These payment plans are called TWIA Full Pay, TWIA 2 Pay, TWIA 4 Pay, and TWIA 10 Pay (Auto Draft).

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 if they choose TWIA Full Pay, TWIA 2 Pay, or TWIA 4 Pay. The policyholder/applicant must make any additional payments by an approved payment method.

TWIA will mail policyholders their policy packet upon receipt of the initial payment and a notice when it is time to make any additional payments.

The TWIA 10 Pay Plan Requires Automatic Payments: Those who choose the TWIA 10 Pay plan must enable Auto Pay. Doing so authorizes TWIA to draft a payment from their account for any currently due and past due invoices. The policyholder/applicant must submit the initial payment.

If Auto Pay is turned off, the payment plan will be changed from TWIA 10 Pay to TWIA 4 Pay. The TWIA 10 Pay plan will not be available for the remainder of the policy term.
