Dealers Insurance


During this threatening financial time in our country, many of you may have had difficulty paying insurance for your dealer plates.

Timothy Derham, CEO of Universal Casualty, would like to advise all NYIADA members that we will extend to all two months of deferred payments – no question asked – on your dealer plates. Payments will be postponed for 60 days. Please contact me, and we can submit applications for your NYS dealer plates this month.

Hoping all members are safe and wishing all well during this crisis. 

Thank You,
