Under Section 111 of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2015, Treasury is required to collect, on an annual basis, data relating to the effectiveness of the Program. This data is used in connection with the reports that it must submit to Congress during the period the Program remains in effect.
Prior to 2018, Treasury and state insurance regulators separately collected data concerning terrorism risk insurance. Beginning in 2018, Treasury, state insurance regulators, and the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) developed a consolidated collection approach that permits companies subject to both data calls to separately submit the same information to Treasury and state insurance regulators.
The 2020 TRIP Data Call Reporting Period is now open. Participating insurers must register and submit complete data forms no later than May 15, 2020. Please visit https://www.tripsection111data.com/ for registration information.

Participation in Treasury’s annual data call is mandatory for all insurers who write commercial property/casualty policies in lines of insurance subject to the Terrorism Risk Insurance Program, subject to the reporting exemptions identified below.
Insurers should report data on a group basis using the appropriate reporting template (Non-Small Insurers, Small Insurers, Captive Insurers, Alien Surplus Lines Insurers). For purposes of the 2020 TRIP Data Call (focusing on calendar year 2019 information), insurance groups or entities that had both a policyholder surplus and TRIP-eligible direct earned premium of less than $900 million (each) in 2018 should complete the Small Insurers template. Please review the instructions for additional guidelines on selecting the appropriate reporting template.
Registration and Data Submission Process
In order to use the data collection facility to submit and certify the requested data, an insurer must first register with the data aggregator. The registration process provides necessary security controls, both with respect to authenticating and safeguarding the information being submitted and for the general security of the data facility.
Insurers who are required to submit data must visit: https://www.tripsection111data.com/ to download a registration form for the 2020 TRIP Data Call. The completed registration form must then be emailed to email@example.com.
After the insurer’s registration is processed, the data aggregator will provide the insurer with the appropriate data collection template or other specifications for completion using secure file transfer protocol (SFTP). Insurers will also submit their completed data via SFTP (in .csv or .xls format).
Insurance groups or entities are exempt from reporting if they had less than $10 million in TRIP-eligible direct earned premium (DEP) in 2019. This exemption does not apply to Captive Insurers or Alien Surplus Lines Insurers. Captive Insurers that write TRIP-eligible lines of insurance but which do not provide any terrorism risk insurance subject to the Program are also exempt from reporting.
No additional reporting exemptions will be granted.
Data Call Instructions and Forms
Copies of the 2020 TRIP Data Call forms and instructions as approved by OMB are provided here for review only. Reporting insurers will receive individualized data collection templates from the data aggregator after registering for the 2020 TRIP Data Call.
Notice advising of the commencement of the 2020 TRIP Data Call and describing changes to the data collection forms can be found in the Federal Register Notice.
Treasury has also created a comprehensive ZIP code listing for the Geographic Exposures worksheet. A selection of sample fact patterns is available to assist insurers with proper completion of the forms. Additional modeling assumptions (if needed) for the modeled loss question are also available.
Four training webinars were held for the 2020 TRIP Data Call. Recordings of each webinar are available below.
- Alien Surplus Lines Insurer Webinar
- Captive Insurer Webinar
- Non-Small Insurer Webinar
- Small Insurer Webinar
Workers' Compensation Data
Treasury has arranged with the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI), the California Workers’ Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau (California WCIRB), and the New York Compensation Insurance Rating Board (NYCIRB) to provide (either directly or through other workers’ compensation rating bureaus) the workers’ compensation insurance elements of the data call relating to premium and payroll information, with the exception of private reinsurance arrangements associated with workers’ compensation insurance.
The data aggregator will provide insurers writing workers’ compensation insurance with reporting templates that will not require provision of workers’ compensation data. Instead, that information will be provided by NCCI, California WCIRB, and/or NYCIRB, and then merged into the information provided directly by the reporting insurers.
Reporting insurers who only write workers’ compensation policies are still required to register for data collection and submit the data elements that will not be provided by NCCI, California WCIRB, and/or NYCIRB.
2020 Reporting Deadline
All insurers are required to register and report all identified data elements no later than May 15, 2020.
Because of the timing and content of Treasury’s 2020 report to Congress, no reporting extensions will be granted.
