Producer Database (PDB)

The Producer Database (PDB) is a central repository of producer licensing information updated on a timely basis by participating state insurance departments. The PDB includes data from external databases such as the Regulatory Information Retrieval System (RIRS) to provide a more comprehensive producer profile.

General demographic information, license and appointment information, as well as regulatory actions. Visit the Producer Database page for more information.

The information displayed in the Producer Database (PDB) comes directly from the participating state insurance departments. For data in the PDB to be changed, it must be sent to NIPR by a participating state insurance department. Please contact the department of insurance for the state that is supplying the incorrect information. When the state updates their database, it will automatically be sent to the PDB.

For more information regarding becoming a PDB customer, please contact the NIPR Marketing Department at (816) 783-8467 or marketing@nipr.com.

To obtain your own PDB report you will need to review the requirements and submit the request form.

Company Appointment Renewals

Please check NIPR's Appointment Renewals Announcements for the renewal period and license types accepted for electronic renewals for each state.

  • Please use only one form of search criteria.
  • You may have appointments for license types that are not renewable through NIPR.
  • If you just submitted a payment for another invoice, you may need to restart your browser to access invoices for other companies.

Enter the company information to search for the invoice, choose "Download Text" from the drop down box and click “GO.” You will be prompted to save or open the file you are trying to download. This will open in an excel spreadsheet.

ACH / Electronic Check Payments

You may need to provide pre-authorization to your bank prior to paying for an NIPR product or service via electronic check. If you are unsure if your account requires pre-authorization, please contact your bank.

To pre-authorize the electronic transfer of funds from your account, your bank will require an Automated Clearing House (ACH) number from NIPR.  This number should be communicated to your authorizing bank.  The NIPR ACH number is: 9431763793. Use 'NIPR' for the company name.

No, since NIPR utilizes a third party vender to process the electronic check payments, only the ACH number and company name are required.

No. The American Banking Association(ABA) number is only needed when companies are conducting transfers directly.

No. Smaller banks and some credit unions may not be setup to process electronic checks. Contact your bank if you are not sure they will accept electronic checks.

If you have general questions, please contact NIPR Customer Service at: (855) 674-NIPR (6477)

No.  There are no additional processing fees associated with electronic check payments.

A payment may fail after the transaction has been submitted to the state. This can happen for an incorrect routing number, closed account or other reason beyond the control of NIPR.  The transaction cannot be cancelled at this time.  NIPR will contact you for payment to NIPR for the completed transaction.

There will be a returned check charge for each electronic check that does not clear the bank. Additionally, NIPR will contact you regarding the failed payment.  If payment is not resolved in a reasonable amount of time, NIPR will also contact the State in which you are attempting to conduct business to inform them that payment has not been received.  Once the payment has been resolved, NIPR will again contact the state to inform them of the resolution.

The check number may vary in length but the field may be up to 9-digits long.

The check number is not sent in the ACH file, so customers can enter any number that has not been used in the system. The check number field is used to make sure that duplicate check numbers are not entered. Note: Banks use ?0001? to denote a check without a number.

The denied screen is an indication that the information you have entered is not valid.  Please check your entry and try again.
