IMPORTANT RECONCILIATION INFORMATION

Companies may utilize NIPR’s Company Appointment Reconciliation Report (CARR) to terminate appointments of insurance producers who no longer represent the company. The CARR is designed to facilitate the appointment renewal process for regulators and for the insurance industry. As a NIPR customer you can use the CARR to create a listing of your active appointments for a specific company in a specific state. The CARR has the functionality of completing “Not for Cause” terminations directly from the report allowing you to reconcile your company’s insurance producer listing against the Producer Database. Terminations are generated electronically through the NIPR Gateway.

If you have any questions regarding the appointment renewal process, contact:

NIPR Customer Service at 816-674-NIPR (6474) or customerservice@nipr.com
