Annual Data Collection

Under Section 111 of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2015, Treasury is required to collect, on an annual basis, data relating to the effectiveness of the Program.  This data is used in connection with the reports that it must submit to Congress during the period the Program remains in effect.

Prior to 2018, Treasury and state insurance regulators separately collected data concerning terrorism risk insurance. Beginning in 2018, Treasury, state insurance regulators, and the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) developed a consolidated collection approach that permits companies subject to both data calls to separately submit the same information to Treasury and state insurance regulators.

The proposed data collection forms for the 2019 TRIP Data Call are currently available for public comment. Copies of the proposed forms are available for review, and all comments can be submitted as explained in the Federal Register notice at this link. Comments must be submitted no later than January 8, 2019.

Required Participants

Participation in Treasury’s annual data call is mandatory for all insurers who write commercial property/casualty policies in lines of insurance subject to the Terrorism Risk Insurance Program, subject to the reporting exemptions identified below.

Insurers should report data on a group basis using the appropriate reporting template (Non-Small Insurers, Small Insurers, Captive Insurers, or Alien Surplus Lines Insurers). For purposes of the 2019 TRIP Data Call (focusing on calendar year 2018 information), insurance groups or entities that had both a policyholder surplus and TRIP-eligible direct earned premium of less than $800 million (each) in 2017 should complete the Small Insurers template. Please review the instructions for additional guidelines on selecting the appropriate reporting template.


Registration and Data Submission Process

Please note that registration and data submission will not be available until the 2019 data collection forms are approved for use by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

In order to use the data collection facility to submit and certify the requested data, an insurer must first register with the data aggregator. The registration process provides necessary security controls, both with respect to authenticating and safeguarding the information being submitted and for the general security of the data facility.

Insurers who are required to submit data must visit https://www.tripsection111data.com/ to download a registration form for the 2019 TRIP Data Collection. The completed registration form must then be emailed to tripsection111data@iso.com.

After the insurer’s registration is processed, the data aggregator will provide the insurer with the appropriate data collection template or other specifications for completion using secure file transfer protocol (SFTP). Insurers will also submit their completed data via SFTP (in .csv or .xls format).


Reporting Exemptions

Insurance groups or entities are exempt from reporting if they had less than $10 million in TRIP-eligible direct earned premium (DEP) in 2018. This exemption does not apply to Captive Insurers or Alien Surplus Lines Insurers. Captive Insurers that write TRIP-eligible lines of insurance but which do not provide any terrorism risk insurance subject to the Program are also exempt from reporting.

No additional reporting exemptions will be granted.


 

Draft Data Collection Instructions and Forms for Public Comment

Copies of the 2019 data collection forms and instructions are provided here for review and public comment only. After these forms are approved by OMB, all insurers will receive individualized data collection templates from the data aggregator after registering for the 2019 TRIP Data Call.

Alien Surplus Lines Insurers:   Form    |   Instructions

Captives:   Form    |    Instructions

Non-Small Insurers:   Form    |   Instructions

Small Insurers:   Form    |   Instructions

Treasury has also created a comprehensive ZIP code listing for the Geographic Exposures worksheet. A selection of sample fact patterns will also be available, once the data collection period is open, to assist insurers with proper completion of the forms


Training Webinars

Dates for the 2019 TRIP Data Call training webinars will be provided in this space when the 2019 data collection forms are approved for use by OMB.


2019 Workers’ Compensation Data

Dates for the 2019 TRIP Data Call training webinars will be provided in this space when the 2019 data collection forms are approved for use by OMB. Treasury has arranged with the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI), the California Workers’ Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau (California WCIRB), and the New York Compensation Insurance Rating Board (NYCIRB) to provide (either directly or through other workers’ compensation rating bureaus) the workers’ compensation insurance elements of the data call relating to premium and payroll information, with the exception of private reinsurance arrangements associated with workers’ compensation insurance.

The data aggregator will provide insurers writing workers’ compensation insurance with reporting templates that will not require provision of workers’ compensation data. Instead, that information will be provided by NCCI, California WCIRB, and/or NYCIRB, and then merged into the information provided directly by the reporting insurers. Reporting insurers who only write workers’ compensation policies are still required to register for data collection and submit the data elements that will not be provided by NCCI, California WCIRB, and/or NYCIRB.


2019 Reporting Deadline

All insurers will be required to register and report all identified data elements no later than May 15, 2019.

Because of the timing and content of Treasury’s 2019 report to Congress, no reporting extensions will be granted.
