14 Basis of Product Standards  Model Laws if they exist  Laws, regs or Desk Drawer Rules in effect in the majority of states  Best Practices, if state regulation (or interpretation of model laws) is varied or lacking  All requirements are carefully documented to be understood by company and reviewer (C) IIPRC 2010

15 IIPRC Uniform Standards  IIPRC more comprehensive and straightforward  IIPRC more challenging in some areas –Bar may be raised for some requirements (but Compacting states may adopt those requirements anyway) –Compliance may require system changes or product redesign  IIPRC reflects consensus of all states, which may override single state interpretation of a model law (C) IIPRC 2010

16 Completing your Submission Requirements  Use the applicable UNIFORM STANDARD to help you.  Check our Filing information Notices (FIN).  Check our General Instructions in SERFF.  Review How to File a Statement of Intent (SOI) in SERFF (C) IIPRC 2010

17 The Actuarial Memorandum  Most Uniform Standards include a section dedicated solely to the Actuarial Requirements.  Be sure to review the provisions in the Uniform Standard for other submission requirements.  Be sure to include necessary formulae, calculations and examples.  Submit all under Actuarial Memorandum. (C) IIPRC 2010

18 Statement of Variability and Specifications Page  The requirements for each are in the Additional Submission Requirements section of every applicable Uniform Standard.  Be careful to make these elements consistent with the actuarial memoranda and the forms.  You must attach a detailed listing of all variable items, and certify to it.  Be sure to have the specifications page consistent with the rest of the filing. (C) IIPRC 2010

19 “Mix and Match”  The Product Filing Rule was amended to eliminate the two-year time frame associated with the “mix and match” filing process.  All Uniform Standards that are adopted to date are eligible for “mix and match” (except CSO); all future uniform standards will specify if eligible for “mix and match”.  Review our General Instructions in SERFF and FIN 9 (2009) for more for detailed information on completing mix and match requirements.  A new SOI Schedule tab was introduced on 12/9/09 and must be used for all filings made thereafter. (C) IIPRC 2010


21 Double Check Those Submission Requirements!

22 If the filing does not contain a Mix & Match element, the filer will set the “SOI Schedule Required” field to No. Otherwise, the filer must select the “Filing Type” and attach the Statement of Intent Certification Form. The filer will then add rows as necessary to enter the detailed SOI information.

23 The filer completes the fields on the SOI schedule, which are taken directly from the SOI document previously in use on IIPRC Mix & Match filings. Once the SOI schedule and the remainder of the filing is complete, it can be submitted to the IIPRC. The included state will receive a message.

24 Double Check your Filing Fees – the IIPRC & State Fees

25 Product Review and Approval   Intake review verifies filing fees and includes all submission requirements   Objections are specific and reference requirements found in the various sections of the Uniform Standards.  We use our review checklists and attach to filings. (C) IIPRC 2010
