California Earthquake Premium and Policy Count Data Call 2018
For the Year 2018
The California Earthquake Premium, Exposures and Policy Count Data Call will be due on March 15, 2019.
This report is authorized by California Insurance Code (CIC) Section 10089.13(a). The data (in aggregate form) will be provided to the California Earthquake Authority (CEA) in order to fulfill their annual reporting obligations under the same Code. The California Insurance Commissioner is a board member of the CEA per CIC Section 10089.7(a).
Who is Required to Report?
- All California licensed property & casualty companies writing homeowners multiple peril (Line 4), fire (Line 1), commercial multiple peril (Line 5.1), and/or earthquake (Line 12) are required to submit their data in the Data Collection Workbook and complete the Signature Page. The aforementioned line numbers correspond to the same line numbers as in the Annual Statement.
- If your company does not have any experience in the lines of business mentioned above for the year 2018, the reporting requirement is satisfied by indicating so on the Signature Page.
- Penalties for Non-Compliance: Companies that fail to submit the Signature Page and the Data Collection Workbook (if applicable) by the requested due date will be considered in non-compliance with CIC Section 700(c) and will be referred to the Department's Legal Division for further action.
Step 1: Determine whether your company has any data to report. If "no data", please download the Signature Page, fill it out, and have it signed and saved/scanned to a Portable Document Format (PDF) file, and e-mail it to: RSBeqexp@insurance.ca.gov.
Step 2: If your company has data to report, download both the EQ-EXP 2018 Data Collection Workbook and the Signature Page from below.
