Premiums, Payments and Refunds
The amount owed on the invoice I received is different than the amount shown on my Declarations page. Which amount is the correct one?
Lawyers who do not file an application for coverage by the deadline are required to pay an increased premium as they represent a higher risk. In fact, as a group, those who file late or not at all are more than twice as likely to have a claim reported than lawyers who do file in a timely way
1. File a Premium Payment Authorization for a new credit card or chequing account.
2. Change your payment information or instalment payment by emailing [email protected] at least ten days prior to any payment date.
If the credit card is owned by a third party, other than another lawyer or paralegal partner or shareholder in the law firm, the law firm itself, or a management or other company of the law firm, you must obtain the consent of the third party authorizing the transaction and have them complete this form.
A third party includes the spouse of the applicant lawyer or the spouse of another lawyer in the firm; a non-lawyer employee of the law firm; or any other third party. This third party authorization will apply to future policy years, unless LAWPRO is advised in writing otherwise.
If you are a lawyer and would like to submit a payment authorization for your premium or the premium of another lawyer who is a member of your law firm, please do not use this form, but sign-in to My LAWPRO to make a payment.
Appreciating that it may take some time for you to complete and file your Application for Exemption form, a prorated refund can be issued for up to the 30-day period immediately before LAWPRO’s receipt of your Exemption form.
Any return of premiums is made payable to the original payor, unless otherwise requested by you and the original payor in writing. For those carrying the Real Estate Practice Coverage Option, we are not able to backdate for this 30-day period.
