Rate, Form, Territory, Classification and Rule Filing Instructions for Property/Casualty Filers
As stated in Circular Letter No. 15 (2003) and Circular Letter No. 5 (2009), form and rate filings should be submitted through the System for Electronic Rate and Form Filings (SERFF).
DFS provides documents and links via SERFF, to assist companies with the filing of rates, forms, territories, classifications and rules in the State of New York.
