Printing Backlog for Policy Documents
April 04, 2023
Citizens recently discovered that, since December 2022, one of our vendors for printing and mailing documents had experienced delays and did not mail some documents. This issue appears limited to between December 5, 2022, and March 10, 2023.
We previously notified affected agents about delayed renewal invoices for direct-billed policies. This communication addresses other documents that are delayed, including new and renewal business packages.
Citizens is working with our vendors to mail all delayed policy documents to policyholders and additional interests by April 17, 2023. Your customers soon will, or already have received their documents.
PolicyCenter® will display a note for affected policies:
Subject: Printing Backlog Issue

If a policyholder needs to obtain their documents earlier:
- Credentialed agency staff can fulfill policy document requests for customers by accessing PolicyCenter.
- Encourage the policyholder to access policy documents immediately online using myPolicy. If they are not yet registered, please assist them with the registration process.
