California Client Announcement

Dec 13, 2018

Effective Immediately ? Nationwide Private Client wants to express our concern after recent wildfires in California and we hope that you and your loved ones are safe. To help during this time, we are observing a grace period for any premium payment deadlines falling on or after November 8, 2018 through December 12, 2018. This grace period applies to clients who either reside in or own property in the ZIP codes listed below.

Please disregard this notice if your policy premium has been paid in full.

In light of the above, please be assured your coverage isn’t at risk of lapsing due to nonpayment of premium – we want you to focus on your other priorities. Take some time to review the important information below.

Impacted clients or property in the following ZIP codes are currently included within these accommodations:

Camp Fire: 95941, 95966, 95968, 95981, 95916, 95926, 95928, 95938, 95942, 95954, 95965, 95969, 95973

Hill Fire:  93010, 93030, 93033, 93041, 93042, 93066

Woolsey Fire:  90265, 91301, 91302, 91304, 91307, 91320, 91360, 91361, 91362, 91367, 91377, 93012, 93021, 93063, and 93065

What to expect

If you don’t make any payments during the grace period, your coverage won’t be interrupted due to nonpayment, but your balance of owed premium will continue to grow. When regular billing resumes at the end of the grace period, you’ll be required to pay all the premium that the company earned for the coverage you received. If you have the funds available, you may continue to make payments during the grace period in order to avoid a large amount of premium due at the end of the grace period.

Please keep in mind:

  • As stated above, if you have paid your policy premium in full you can disregard this notice.
  • We will continue sending billing notices or other correspondence associated with your policy, whether you make payments or not.
  • If you pay by Recurring Electronic Funds Transfer (REFT), your bank account will continue to be debited as usual. If you want to delay your payments, please contact your agent.    
  • Your outstanding balance will continue to build if you don’t make your regular payment; and
  • At the end of the grace period, failure to make your payment for the full outstanding balance due will result in cancellation of your policy.

What you need to know

  • If you have already received a notice of cancellation effective on or after November 8, 2018, the cancellation will be withdrawn;
  • The withdrawal of the notice does not relieve your obligation to pay for coverage at the end of the grace period, as you are still responsible for the premium the company has earned for the coverage you received; and
  • At the end of the grace period, if you don’t make the required payment, you will receive a new notice of cancellation ? if your payments are current, you will not receive a notice of cancellation for nonpayment.

We appreciate the trust you’ve placed in us to help you protect what’s most important to you. If you have any questions or need additional information, contact the Private Client Solutions Center at 1-855-473-6410, 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. CST or reach out to your insurance agent.
