RCIS Online Payment Option
Coming Soon: Online payments for producers

WHAT’S HAPPENING:

RCIS policyholders will soon have the option to make payments online, rather than mailing a check to RCIS for crop insurance payments.

RCIS is releasing the new service for tech-savvy farmers and ranchers. RCIS agents will have visibility to their customers' online payment information.

Policyholders will have two options to make secured payments online:

  • RCIS.com website
  • RCIS.com for Producers website (portal) 

Payments will post sooner than if mailed to RCIS.

The new service is part of an ongoing effort by RCIS to deliver industry-leading tools to help its agents and policyholders. Online payments will help speed up the payment process, reduce manual processing and save postage.

ACTION REQUIRED:

  • If you would be interested in online payments. A video about the new service can be found here.
  • Watch for a message soon announcing that the service will be available to all RCIS policyholders on September 1.
