LIDMA Straight-Through Processing Seal of Approval Application

Straight-Through Processing (STP) is a process that companies use to speed up their transaction processing time allowing companies to have information streamlined through multiple points.  STP limits the manual process of employees having to enter redundant information multiple times in multiple legacy systems.  STP allows companies to share information electronically in a quicker, more secure and consumer friendly manner.

The requirements contained in the application must be satisfied in order to achieve the LIDMA Straight Through Processing Seal of Approval.  Providing specific details on how each requirement is met assists the LIDMA members in evaluating the various straight-through processing options and to ultimately choose the right solution that fits their business model.  This is a great opportunity to get your straight-through processing solution in front of heavy users in the Life insurance industry who may be assessing various solutions to adopt in the way they conduct business.

The Seal of Approval will be awarded twice annually.  See the annual submission calendar below:
