TDI issues data call for 2018 Texas catastrophe area premiums

06/18/2019

TDI has issued a special data call to companies that wrote direct commercial property or businessowners insurance in Texas and to certain farm mutual insurance companies that wrote property insurance in Texas during calendar year 2018.

Companies must complete and return their responses no later than July 22, 2019.
 
The data call is necessary to supplement TDI's statistical information and to enable the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association to calculate updated participation shares for assessments, should they be required.

Companies must respond to this data call if it falls within one of the categories described below. A company subject to this data call must submit the data call form and certification to TDI even if the company does not write any applicable business in the Texas catastrophe area.

TDI will email this data call only to companies that fall into one of the following categories: 

Category 1: Companies reporting 2018 Texas commercial property or businessowners statistical data to TDI's commercial lines statistical agent, Insurance Services Office, Inc. (ISO), under a minimum or limited reporting format that does not include place code or ZIP code-level detail. This category specifically includes companies reporting under the TDI minimum reporting guidelines for commercial lines statistical reporting.
 
Category 2: Companies reporting 2018 Texas commercial property or businessowners statistical data to ISO, under a full reporting plan format in which all four quarters of 2018 data have not been fully accepted by ISO as of March 1, 2019. Companies in this category must report premiums for the entire year, not just the quarters of 2018 that ISO has not fully accepted.
 
Category 3: Farm mutual insurance companies acting as fronting insurers, as defined by Insurance Code Section 221.001(c), that wrote property insurance in 2018.
