Crunch Time for Crop Insurance Agents

If you have a friend who sells crop insurance, don’t be offended if he or she seems a bit preoccupied these days
March 13, 2012

If you have a friend who sells crop insurance, don’t be offended if he or she seems a bit preoccupied these days. The Ides of March are upon crop insurance agents. For crop insurance agents and their farmer clients, March 15  is the annual “drop dead date” to purchase, cancel or change crop insurance. It is a hectic time with agents scheduling farmer appointments, explaining new changes and in many cases running spreadsheets for the farmer client. It can also be a prime time for agent E&O exposures, which requires diligence and documentation by the agent. So, if your friend who sells crop insurance is too busy to have lunch in the next few weeks, don’t be offended.
