Let InsCipher Guide You Through the Submission Process for Surplus Lines Filings

Filing taxes for surplus lines is often complicated, overwhelming, and confusing. Because each state has its own set of requirements, which might change at any time, it takes a lot of time and manpower to stay in compliance. Failure to properly manage each process—including knowing when to file, whether information needs to be submitted monthly and/or quarterly, etc.—can lead to expensive fines.

InsCipher solves those problems with our surplus lines management software, InsCipher Connect™. Our database is kept up-to-date with each state's compliance standards, so once you submit the basic information for each transaction, we break down every step. We tell you exactly which documents to file and when, and we even review each one for accuracy.

  • Translating your policy information into different formats for all 50 states can be a nightmare--with InsCipher it's easy!
  • Take advantage of built-in prompts and document templates to ensure data is submitted correctly the first time.

Before we started using the InsCipher surplus lines management system, I was always worried that there was some surplus lines report or payment I was forgetting—not anymore. I sleep much better knowing InsCipher is tracking these things for me.
