Circular 5//01: Closure of the 1998 Policy Year

  • Date: 02/05/2001




At their meeting on 30th April the Directors decided to close the 1998 policy year without further call. Members will recall that a reduced supplementary call of 30 per cent (in place of the originally planned 40 per cent) was charged in November, 1999.

The position regarding the other open policy years remains unchanged, as follows:

1999 Policy Year

No further call is anticipated.

2000 Policy Year

The final 25 per cent instalment of the mutual premium for the year is due for payment in December, 2001. There is no reason to expect a supplementary premium.

2001 Policy Year

As in the case of the 2000 policy year, three instalments each of 25 per cent of the mutual premium are charged during the (2001) policy year itself, and the final 25 per cent instalment falls due for payment in December of next year. There is no reason to expect a supplementary premium.

Yours faithfully
