This billing option is available for our Commercial Transportation program and is the only billing option available for Ambulance and Lloyds programs. Your office will receive monthly account statements by the 5th business day after closing for all items booked in the statement month.

Agency statement payments are due by the 15th of the current month after statement reconciliation.
NET premiums can be remitted to Bellingham Underwriters any time after the policy is bound without having to wait to reconcile your monthly agency statement for reconciliation/remittance.
Please be advised, for release of agency statement credits, all open items are to be reconciled by the agency accounting department and requires a written release request to Bellingham Underwriters to release open credits to either your agency or the finance company.
