16 COMBINATION (FORMS/RULES/RATES SUBMITTED IN ONE FILING) FILINGS Please use “Policy Form” or “Endorsement” as the main filing type, when submitting forms/endorsements, manual rules, and/or rates in one filing. List all filing types being filed in Item #1 {Description of filing…} of the State-Specific Fields tab. This applies to reference and non-reference filings. Using forms/endorsements as the main filing type alerts TDI that the filing includes this information for the deemer provision. Using manual rule or rate as main filing type when also submitting forms/endorsements in one filing is incorrect.

17 MULTI-PERIL AND DUAL FILINGS A Dual filing is a monoline filing for a line of insurance that may also be used with the insurer's multi-peril policy without having to submit a separate multi-peril filing. Item #6 {Dual Filing} is completed [when applicable] when the filing is submitted with a monoline insurance line. TDI requires “Yes” or “No” wording and previously approved/accepted Multi-Peril TDI#, Link#(State Tracking#). Do not put a monoline TDI#/Link#(State Tracking#), the SERFF Tracking#, or your company tracking#. Do not include information in Item #6 {Dual Filing} when the filing is already being submitted as a Multi-Peril (Commercial or Personal) filing.

19 MULTI-PERIL AND INTERLINE FILINGS Only certain types of filings can be submitted as Interline – refer to the Filings Made Easy Guide. Multi-Peril and Interline are not the same type of filing, i.e., “multi-line”. Interline is considered a separate type of filing in Texas. Item #5 {Interline Filing} is completed only when the filing is submitted as an Interline filing. Do not include information in Item #5 {Interline Filing} when the filing is already being submitted as a Multi-Peril (Commercial or Personal) filing.

21 REFERENCE FILING SUBMISSIONS Reference Filing – the adoption of either an Advisory Organization’s or another insurance company’s rates, forms/endorsements, and/or manual rules without any modifications to or including copies of this information. Refer to Advisory Organization Approved/Accepted Reference Filings list at (1999 to present). Example: TDI # Refer to Property/Casualty Reference Filings list at (1992 to 1999). Example: TDI ISO-BOP-PF Reference Filings – show all required information on Item #4 of the State-Specific Fields Tab.

22 PLEASE SIMPLIFY YOUR REFERENCE FILING SUBMISSIONS TDI only requires the Advisory Organization Name and/or Insurance Company Name, Filing Types, and TDI File number and/or TDI Link #(State Tracking#). TDI does not require a copy of the Advisory Organization Circular, the Circular #, or Advisory Organization number. TDI does not require *copies of the forms and/or endorsements or its information (name, form#, etc.) TDI does not require *copies of the manual pages or its manual rule page and/or rate information. *Exception: submit the above information only if modifications and/or revisions are being made to them.

Any kind of rating plan (composite, retrospective, etc.) is considered a rate filing in Texas. For rate filings, please refer to the following websites: (1999 to present: “P/C Actuarial” links by coverage part) or ( : RT, RP, or RM filing types).
