Expanded Helpful Data Reporting Tips

As we continue to work to provide more and more resources to our member companies, we are now in the process of expanding our Helpful Data Reporting Tips. This is a document that contains useful information regarding common data problems and errors. It can be found on the NISS website under the Edit Tools dropdown.

We will soon be offering enhanced line-specific reporting tips which will include more detailed information and references to corresponding pages in our Statistical Plans. These documents will be ever-changing and expanding as we continue to do all we can to make the reporting process as easy and simple as it can be.

Affidavit Overview

The Affidavit is a form which sets forth the confidentiality agreement for the data submitted, and also attests that data submissions for a particular Call Year present a true and accurate record of your company’s experience. This form requires an electronic signature and can be submitted through the NISS website.

The Affidavit should be submitted after all data for a specific Call Year has been submitted to NISS, including any requested resubmissions. Since all data must be submitted before NISS can accept the Affidavit, it is not due until the year following the Call Year. For example, the Affidavit corresponding to the 2018 Call Year data submissions is due June 30, 2019. However, you do not need to wait until the due date to submit – when your company has submitted all of your data submissions for a Call Year, you will receive an email from NISS to alert you that you can now submit the Affidavit.
