Unconditional releases through the current payment period from your vendors will be accepted in lieu of a joint check.

How will you know when your check is ready?
You will receive an email from go@getlienwaivers.com instructing you to complete your waiver. Upon Journeyman’s receipt of your waiver, your check will available to be mailed or picked up. If Joint checks are issued, you must appear in person to endorse payment(s) and sign your waiver. We will forward the joint check(s) to your vendor and obtain a lien release.

Who can you contact to inquire about the status of your payment?
You may call or email your Project Administrator and Project Manager to request a payment status update.

When will retainage be paid?
Retained funds will be disbursed after final completion of the entire project and when all operation and maintenance manuals, warranties, attic stock and any other contractually required close-out items have been accepted and approved by the owner. In addition, you will be required to execute a final lien waiver and provide final lien waivers from all lower-tier subcontractors and vendors listed on any J-1 form.

What is MyCOI?
MyCOI is the insurance management company that receives, stores, tracks and reviews all insurance for compliance with your agreement.

Once your agreement is fully executed, an email will be sent to you asking you to register online with myCOI. Part of the registration process includes providing contact information for your insurance agent(s). You will also need this information available to you at the time of registration. Once you have registered and entered the email address for your insurance agent(s), an email will be sent to the insurance agent(s) requesting them to upload your Certificate of Insurance (COI) directly into the myCOI website. Certificates of Insurance cannot be mailed, emailed or faxed to Journeyman Construction. You will not be allowed to begin work and no payments will be made to you until registration is completed and a compliant COI is received from your agent(s).
