By agreeing to an EFT payment plan you will not only save yourself the hassle of writing monthly checks, you also eliminate the risk of late payment fees or even worse a cancellation due to non-payment. In addition, you can pocket the savings that could amount to 5-10% of your premium.
If you would like to save money contact your agent about your payment plan and have him “bill your bank”. If the option is not available from your current company, he can check his line-up of insurance companies for one that matches your needs.
