Do you write business in Rhode Island?

By Lacy Berthold May 21, 2014

gavelA new Rhode Island law — calling for implementation of an uninsured motorist database — becomes effective July 1, 2014.

Note the short implementation window: The first official e-mail went out May 9, and the state expects insurers to register next month and go live by November of this year.

The law, Chapter § 31-47.4 of the Rhode Island General Laws, requires a monthly book-of-business file for personal auto. Providing a commercial auto file is optional but recommended.

In an effort to help insurance companies comply, the state provided a tentative implementation schedule:

  • by June 16, 2014 – Register on the Rhode Island Insurance Verification System (RIIVS) website.
  • by September 5, 2014 – Complete testing.
  • by November 7, 2014 – Begin submitting monthly production book-of-business files to RIIVS.
