  • Termination notices for individual appointments that you do not wish to renew must be received by NIPR no later than 11:59 pm CST February 27, 2020 to allow enough time for processing before the renewal invoices are created.

  • Appointment renewal fees will be due by 5pm CDT June 1, 2020 for all appointments to be renewed.

Important Payment Information:

Payments for District of Columbia appointment renewals must be received by NIPR through the electronic options made available.  If you are unable to process appointment renewals electronically, please contact District of Columbia Department of Insurance for assistance. Contact information below.

Paper checks will not be accepted. Companies that submit payment to NIPR via paper check will not have their renewal invoice processed, and payment will be returned. Since receipt of a paper check is through a lock box account, it may take NIPR several days to post the paper check in order to issue a refund check to your company. NIPR is not responsible for any renewal late fees incurred during this period.
