FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I have paid $15.00 for my membership fee, but what happens if I have more than one policy?

Your premium refund will be based on the total combined earned premiums of all your Mutual Fire Insurance policies for that year. In the event more than one company is providing your insurance and the policy is issued by Mutual Fire Insurance, the refund will be based on the Mutual Fire Insurance portion.

How do you calculate the amount of premium refund returned to a member?

Each member’s proportionate share (%) of the total amount of member premiums, will equate to their proportionate share (%) of the premium refund pool.

How long do I have to be a member to qualify for a refund?

The member must have a premium note (your membership fee) in place for one year prior to the fiscal year-end to be eligible for a refund. The membership must be continuous and must have been in effect on the last day of the fiscal year.

I am a member, how do I become a Director on the Mutual Fire Insurance Board?

A fellow member must put forward a nomination for you to be a member, which will then be considered and voted on at the AGM.

Am I eligible to be a Director on the Board regardless of the province I live in?
