Carriers are now able to submit payments for appointment renewal and company assessment invoices through an Automated Clearing House (ACH) process using Vertafore's Sircon solution. Payments can be made with checking, savings or corporate checking accounts. To submit these payments, the bank account must be authorized to accept ACH transactions. There will be a $10 service fee for each invoice paid.
Please sign up for a Sircon account in the 'Create Your Sircon Account' section above for Carriers. Once you have created an account, you will also need to notify your bank of Vertafore's ACH payment processor information:
Once your Sircon account is set up and your bank is notified of the above information, no additional set up is needed. To access the State Invoice Payment service, log into your Sircon account using the link above. Under the Administration menu, click on Pay State Invoices to process payment.
If you have any questions regarding your Sircon account or this new payment service, please contact Sircon directly at https://sirconwalkup.vertafore.com/apex/sc_ContactSupport or (877) 876-4430.
