Temporary SERFF Workaround ? SOI Amendments
If you need to amend the Statement of Intent (SOI) via amendment letter in a pending or approved Compact filing in the next few weeks, please follow the instructions in this Weekly Tip, as SERFF is currently experiencing a temporary technical issue when users submit SOI updates via amendment letter.
Due to a temporary technical error, a filer who attempts to submit an SOI update via amendment letter in SERFF receives the following message: ?At least one schedule item must be added to save the amendment.? For the next several weeks, these filers are advised to effect SOI updates via the following process:
- For previously approved filings, the filer should send a note to reviewer requesting the filing be reopened for SOI updates.
If the filing is under review, the filer should still send a note to reviewer requesting to submit an SOI update, unless an SOI revision was requested by the Compact reviewer in an objection letter.
- The Compact will issue an objection letter
- Filer should submit a response letter with the SOI update attached.
- For previously approved filings, the Compact will close the filing and the update will be submitted for Compact and state viewing. For a filing under review, this workaround will not affect the Compact?s review process.
If you have any questions about updating the SOI in a Compact filing, or about filing with the Insurance Compact in general, please contact the Insurance Compact Office.
