Find a payment option that works for you
For all payment set up options, you will need the information found in the top right corner of your statement.
Do it online in FMG Connect
FMG Connect is our online service where you can view and manage your insurance. You can also manage your payments, including:
- making changes to your existing direct debit payments
- setting up direct debit payments at renewal
- making secure, one-off payments via credit card.
Register or log in any time to view your account, policy, and payment details.
Making an annual payment is the most cost-effective option to pay your premiums. If it suits you better to pay monthly, quarterly or six-monthly, you can choose to do so (please note this will affect your premium).
You can set up a direct debit payment online in FMG Connect prior to your renewal or by calling the team for a quote.
FMG Connect allows you to also manage your upcoming direct debit payments, including updating your bank account and payment date (if the payment date is within 14 days, please call us).
Using a direct debit form
You can download our direct debit form below. Complete the form and either scan and email it to [email protected], or post to FMG Payment Services, Freepost Authority 120395, PO Box 1943, Palmerston North Central 4440.
If you'd rather talk to someone about your direct debit options call us on 0800 366 466 option 4, then option 2 to speak with the Payment Services team.
Direct debits are paid on the same calendar date each month (e.g. 28th ); it's not possible to process these on a specific day of the week. If your payment date falls on a public holiday or weekend, it will be deducted on the next business day.

If you're struggling with bad cellphone reception, we recommend calling us back using a landline or moving to a different location on your property that gets better reception (heading to a higher point on your property will usually mean better reception).
