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. Currently, the PDB includes information from all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands.

Electronic Funds Transfer

Insurance companies can go directly through the NIPR Gateway if they program and build their own front end in the format and syntax that NIPR expects to receive data from industry and states so it can be transmitted to the NIPR Gateway. Please contact NIPR for a copy of the Transaction Layout Document. To submit electronic appointments/terminations directly through the NIPR Gateway, the company must pay the state fees via electronic funds transfer (EFT).
