Online Edit Utility

The NISS Online Edit feature provides member companies with a streamlined process to test their data before submitting to NISS. It utilizes the same edit tables, codes and reports that NISS uses internally to process your data. There are no file size limitations or software requirements for using this Online Edit utility, and it is provided to our members free of charge.

This NISS Online Edit utility allows member companies to upload files for testing as many times as desired. We hope the ease of use and elimination of any file size limitations will encourage members to get the maximum benefits out of this utility. Currently the Online Edit is available for the following lines:

  • Burglary, Robbery and Theft

  • Farmowners

  • Fidelity, Surety and Forgery

  • General Liability

  • General Liability Excess Loss

  • Homeowners

  • Inland Marine

This utility is being developed on an ongoing basis and other lines of business will be added in the future. In the meantime, the remaining lines are still available for testing through the Microsoft Access Edit Software also available on the NISS website. We hope you find this resource very useful as we continue to try to make the reporting process as easy as possible.

Excess Reporting Option

A few years ago, NISS announced a new option for reporting loss data which eliminates the need for a separate Excess submission. The alternative reporting option is available for all lines in which an Excess submission is currently required, including Voluntary Auto, North Carolina Auto (AQR), Assigned Risk Auto, General Liability and Medical Professional Liability (including liability in the CLSP Call). In order to take advantage of this opportunity, you will need to:

  1. Submit a one-time Final Submission of Excess

  2. Begin including claim and claimant numbers in your mainline data submission

As you prepare your 2023 Calls, we want to remind you of the new Excess Loss reporting option. Directions for submitting the Final Submission of Excess can be found in the corresponding Excess Call Instructions. As we continue to make the reporting process as simple as possible for our member companies, we know your company will benefit from this new option.
