Installments and Other Notes
Attorneys will receive a quarterly installment statement for each quarter in which it is due. Attorneys are granted a grace period of one month after the initial installment default date to sign up for the installment plan, but they will be charged a late payment fee. If payment has not been received by the one month deadline, installment payments are no longer an option.
If you activate your coverage after January 1, you may be eligible for a two-part or three-part installment option, depending on the date and timing of your activation. Your billing statement will be prorated and a step-rated credit, if applicable, will be applied on your assessment. Coverage is prorated by month; if you work one day in a month, you will need coverage for that month.
If your PLF billing statement default date falls after June 30, the installment option is not available.
