Policy key, VIN, NAIC and requested verification date are mandatory elements for a web-service request.
- Policy Key: The policy key for each insurance company may be a company’s policy number, or a number that a company uses internally to locate a policy record. If a jurisdiction would like to send a verification request for a specific vehicle, but the insurance company and/or policy key is unknown, an unknown request can be sent to any insurance company. To accomplish this, a value of “UNKNOWN” should be placed in the Policy Key field.
Note: This option may not be available for non-vehicle specific policies, which is the case for many commercially insured customers.
- Vehicle Identification Number (VIN): VIN is used by insurance companies that will verify evidence of insurance at the vehicle level. Some companies may choose to confirm insurance at the policy level.
- NAIC (National Association of Insurance Commissioners) Code
- Requested Verification Date
The message content key from the requesting entity may include the following optional data elements:
- Tracking / reference number
Note: The system provides the ability to accept and return a reference number so that an authorized requester can tie together a verification request with a verification response.
- Drivers’ license number
- Insured name
- Street/PO Box
- City, state and zip code
- Vehicle make
- Vehicle model
- Vehicle year
- Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN)
