2021 A&O Factor Update
February 09, 2021
In 2021, we are currently paying commissions at 64.0%. The lower factor is due to the anticipated higher premium primarily on corn and soybeans. NAU will continue to review the factor and adjust accordingly.
2020 A&O Factor Update
February 22, 2021
As you are probably aware, RMA determines the final industry factor for the 2020 A&O in October 2021. We utilize this information to determine agent commissions. The factor changes monthly until that date. The February accounting report reflected industry uncapped A&O of $1,631,639,654 and the statutory cap of $1,283,432,191. The factor is developed from these numbers and is currently at 78.6590% ($1,283,432,191 / $1,631,639,654). The number is changing as more industry wide premiums are processed and/or adjusted for the 2020 year.
In 2020, we are currently paying commissions at 77.5%.
