COVID-19 & April 10 Assessment Deadline


We understand a number of people are struggling during this COVID-19 pandemic. This includes lawyers, perhaps especially small firms and lawyers in solo practice. We have heard from many lawyers concerned about their ability to make installment payments to the PLF. While we are looking into ways to help, we are not able to change the installment payment plan at this time. 

For background:  A majority of attorneys pay their $3,300 assessment on or before January 1 of each calendar year, but some take advantage of an Installment Plan  (PLF Policy 3.300) established to provide some financial flexibility for covered parties. For those who pay under the Installment Plan, the next quarterly date for payment is April 10, 2020. Click here to pay your assessment online, or send your check to PO Box 231600, Tigard, OR 97281. Unfortunately, since OSB operations have moved offsite, we cannot accept payments in person.  If you have questions about filing an exemption, please contact Jeff Crawford at 503.684.7423 or jeffc@osbplf.org.  

The PLF must protect the long-term viability of its coverage plan, and maintain the reserves necessary to meet its obligations to all covered parties. We are working diligently to find ways we might help mitigate the burden future installment deadlines might pose, and will keep you apprised of those efforts.  In the meantime, please let us know if you have any questions. We are open to hearing from you, and appreciate your engagement as we navigate these trying times.
