Continuous Filing for AgriStability

Previously, participants with non-calendar fiscal year ends often experienced a significant gap between their fiscal year end and when they could apply for AgriStability. Continuous filing was introduced for AgriInvest in 2014 to address the gap and, beginning in 2016, has been extended to AgriStability. Now you can apply for both programs as soon as your fiscal year ends, giving you earlier access to AgriStability and AgriInvest benefits.

AgriStability provides support when you experience a large margin decline. You may be able to receive an AgriStability payment when your current year program margin falls below 70% of your reference margin.

AgriStability is based on margins:

Program margin - your allowable income minus your allowable expenses in a given year, with adjustments for changes in receivables, payables and inventory. These adjustments are made based on information you submit on the AgriStability harmonized form.

Reference margin - your average program margin for three of the past five years (the lowest and highest margins are dropped from the calculation). Your reference margin will be limited to the lower of your historical reference margin or your average allowable expenses for the years used to calculate your reference margin.

Should your production margin fall below 70% of your reference margin in a given year, you will receive a program payment.
