Surcharge Notice Information
The insurer must notify the policyholder and the involved operator that an accident is an at-fault accident and is surchargeable under the Safe Driver Insurance Plan using the Surcharge Notice format.
The SDIP Regulation 211 CMR 134.05: Notification of At-Fault Accidents contains the deadlines for reporting the Surcharge Notice to the policyholder and involved operator. A separate notification must be sent to the policyholder only if the policyholder is a person other than the involved operator.
The Violation Codes table provides a description of the violation codes returned in the policy inquiry responses to insurers. Please note that this information is subject to change without notice.
Administrative Procedures for the SDIP
The Safe Driver Insurance Plan (SDIP) administrative procedures are to be used by insurers for submitting policy inquiries to the Merit Rating Board (MRB) to acquire SDIP information, for submitting SDIP claims to the MRB, and for submitting out-of-state driving records to the MRB.
