IT Product Update - June 27 Release

Veteran Farmer/Rancher implementation

EASYwriter Pro® now supports Veteran Farmer/Rancher (VFR). Veteran Farmer/Rancher will be displayed in the Policy Editor under the Policy Details section. If a policy qualifies for VFR, the "Veteran Farmer/Rancher" will display on Insured and Agent Confirmation documents, as well as, the Schedule of Insurance forms. This feature is also available within EASYquote®.

To qualify for VFR:

  • You must have less than five years of production (similar to Beginning Farmer/Rancher); or
  • You must have less than five years of production from the date of discharge.
    • The insured is eligible for five crop years starting with the first full crop year after discharge.
  • VFR is only applicable on crops with a Sales Closing Date after December 20, 2018.

Northern Potato Quality Option validation

Northern Potato Quality Option validations have been added to EASYwriter Pro to alert the user when:

  • An acreage line does not have the Quality Option added, but it is selected on the coverage.
  • An acreage line does not qualify to have Quality Option applied, users can now select an exception by acreage.
