You gave feedback. We listened. The VFIS P&C Renewal Questionnaires is moving from online screens to fillable PDFs for convenience and faster processing!
Many brokers had been printing PDFs from the Producer Center athnd completing them by hand then either entering the data through the online screens or scanning the PDF for emailing purposes (double the work!). A fillable PDF solution allows for single data entry. Please review the information below and check out the Frequently Asked Questions section.
Note: We have been able to successfully test the fillable PDF solution on Adobe Reader 15.2 and newer on our devices. However, each mobile device could behave differently so we strongly recommend that you test each device you plan to use for compatibility.
Brokers who currently receive their renewal questionnaires online today that cannot update to a compatible version of Adobe Reader will need to contact the Client Services team (firstname.lastname@example.org) and request that their Renewal Questionnaires be distributed through the U.S. Postal Service in printed format.
1. GIG generates the Renewal Questionnaire and makes it accessible in the Producer Center
2. Broker accesses the Renewal Questionnaire and saves a copy to their computer/network
3. The fillable PDF is completed and saved on the Brokers computer/network
4. Broker sends email to Underwriting with completed Renewal Questionnaire attached
