FineFix Payment Plans to Pause During State of Emergency
FineFix participants will be allowed to pause their payment plans during the current state of emergency in Maryland. The Uninsured Division of Maryland Auto Insurance is taking this action in order to provide additional financial relief to Marylanders during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Drivers who are enrolled in the program may pause payments from March 24, 2020 until 30 days after the current state of emergency in Maryland is ended. During this time, program participants will not be entered into default status on their payment plan for payments missed during the crisis.
Once the state of emergency ends, the original payment plans terms will be reinstated. Participants will have the same number of days remaining to complete their payments as they did March 24, 2020.
The legislation that created FineFix provides six months from the date of the first payment for enrolled participants to complete the program. Enrollees who do not complete their payment plan within the six-month period are subject to reinstatement of any fines forgiven through FineFix. This pause in the payment deadline will prevent the reinstatement of forgiven fines during the current crisis.
During this period of time, enrolled FineFix participants may continue making payments if they are able to do so. Online payments can be made with credit or debit card, 24/7. Payments are also accepted by phone between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, at 800-492-7120 - select option 8, for FineFix.
