COVID – 19: Message to Ascot US policyholders

 

Ascot US understands the impact COVID-19 may have on our policyholders and has created a dedicated toll-free phone number at 1.844.589.1563 for policyholders to contact us to discuss accommodations in alignment with regulatory obligations and guidance.

 

Starting as of March 16, 2020, Ascot US will be offering a voluntary 60 day hold on cancellations and nonrenewals for all of its US insureds that advise they cannot pay their premiums due to events related to coronavirus except where a longer period may be required by regulatory order. For insureds interested in requesting this accommodation, they can either contact Ascot US directly, or work through their brokers and agents. We will continue to bill premiums but will not cancel for non-payment and no late fees will be assessed during this hold. If your premium(s) were financed through a Premium Finance Company we will follow regulatory guidance in addressing cancellations and nonrenewals requested by the Premium Finance Company as required.

 

In all cases, we will make sure that, in compliance with all applicable regulatory guidance, we are providing accommodations to our insureds where we are required to do so.
