Proof of Coverage Inquiry
NCCI’s received date is used to determine timeliness on POC transactions accepted by the state.
Due within 5 days after the Policy Effective Date.
POC Notices may be submitted if the policy will not be issued within 5 days after the Policy Effective Date. This does not eliminate the need to submit the policy.
Due 10 days prior to the Cancellation Effective Date for all nonpayment cancellations.
All other cancellations are due 30 days prior to the Cancellation Effective Date if within first 60 days of policy.
After the first 60 days, all other cancellations are due 60 days prior to the Cancellation Effective Date.
Due within 5 days after the Reinstatement Effective Date.
Illinois is a continuous coverage state. Nonrenewals are required and must be reported 60 days prior to the effective date of the nonrenewal cancellation.

State Processing Exceptions:
