Early Data Filings – The Importance of Due Dates

At the beginning of each year, NISS sends a personalized filing schedule to each member company in the Verification of Experience (VE) Confirmation Email. The schedule contains a list of due dates for each line of business that company will be submitting. Receiving company data submissions by those due dates allows the NISS staff adequate time to process and review the data and make any necessary corrections so the data is ready to be included in compliance reports. The compliance reports are sent to state insurance departments and other organizations to fulfill regulatory requirements.

Several of the compliance reports are due to regulators not long after the NISS due date, which makes it essential that we receive the data in a timely manner. Below is a list of reports with early due dates, along with a brief explanation.

  • Massachusetts Homeowners – Data is submitted to meet requirements set forth under the Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 175, Section 4A.

  • New York Voluntary Private Passenger Automobile – Full Detail Ratemaking Experience is reported to AIPSO.

  • Voluntary Automobile – Data is submitted to AIPSO on your behalf, broken out by each individual insurer for use in determining and setting AIP quotas and apportioning state AIP expenses.

  • Illinois Cost Containment Report Part 4203.A – NISS furnishes individual insurer (Auto, Homeowners, General Liability, Medical Professional Liability, Businessowners, Excess Insurance) data at the company’s request.

  • North Carolina Homeowners – Homeowners, Dwelling, and Mobilehome data is consolidated for all statistical agents, then sent to the North Carolina Rate Bureau.

Although NISS does not penalize companies for late data submissions, it is important to submit data by the due dates listed on your filing schedule. We appreciate on-time submissions!

Technical Advisory Committee

The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) is a group comprised of member company representatives that advise NISS on the impact of proposed changes. This committee also shares ideas on how to make the reporting process as simple as possible and how to make the website and other resources more convenient and useful for member companies.

The TAC meets two times each year to discuss potential changes. This committee is a crucial part of the development and testing of tools and resources for NISS companies, and we thank the TAC members for their valuable input!
