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.
