This page is for insurance agents only. If you are a customer of an insurance company and need to submit an insurance form to the BMV, please contact your insurance agency to have them electronically submit the appropriate form to the BMV. To assure the validity of the insurance coverage, state law requires the signature of a licensed insurance agent.
The BMV's Electronic Insurance Forms Submission (EIFS) program allows insurance agents to submit a number of different proofs of financial responsibility forms to the BMV on behalf of their customers. Four different proofs of financial responsibility forms will be accepted electronically through this program – including SR22, SR26, SR50 and Certificate of Compliance.
Please Note: Individual drivers (in or out-of-state) are no longer required to submit an Indiana Operator’s Proof of Insurance/Crash Report (SR21) to the BMV within ten (10) days of an accident as previously required by Indiana law (IC 9-26-1-1(4)). While the BMV accepted SR21s from individuals involved in accidents as the sole proof of insurance, the BMV made an effort to curb fraudulent insurance submissions by only accepting proof of insurance directly from the insurance provider. Although both the SR21 and Certificate of Compliance (COC) still existed, the BMV only accepted insurance verification through the insurance provider and only needed the COC. Eliminating the SR21 simplifies the process to prove insurance coverage.
Although the SR21 form is no longer required, the insurance verification process remains the same. The BMV relies on law enforcement for accident reporting and drivers are still required to submit proof of financial responsibility when requested by the BMV. Upon receipt of an accident report from law enforcement, the BMV will send a request for insurance verification to the driver, explaining the driver’s insurance provider must electronically submit a COC to the BMV.
However, if drivers/agents wish to be proactive about submitting proof of insurance following an accident, the driver’s insurance provider can electronically submit a COC directly to the BMV making sure to list the appropriate driver, vehicle and date of accident. The COC is required to prove insurance coverage for vehicles involved in accidents or traffic citations.
Participating insurance agents may enter information from any of the four accepted forms into the BMV's computer system, which will update the changes to their customers' official driver records. The EIFS program will allow for faster processing of insurance forms, reduction of transposition and misfiling errors, and substantial financial savings to insurance companies and the BMV.
