DTCC Solutions Onboarding


The DTCC Solutions Insurance membership application process can take up to four weeks for completion and approval. This period applies after receipt of all required membership documentation. Other factors in the approval process vary for each candidate, so timing can be longer or shorter depending on the results of the review.

The Account Administration representative reviews the documents to ensure that they are correct on completion. If all documents are in good order, the Anti-Money Laundering/Know Your Customer (AML/KYC) team reviews the information provided.

DTCC accepts applications from duly formed legal entities only, not from individuals.

The NSCC Limited Membership application process varies, but completion and approval can take an average of three (3) months. This time line assumes that the applicant has supplied all required membership documentation in good form to initiate the review. Other factors involved in the membership approval process can vary for each candidate. These factors can include legal entity ownership information, financial and capital requirements, and legal opinion reviews.

 

 

Depending on the Legal Entity type, the following NSCC membership types can use Insurance products:

  • INSURANCE CARRIER/RETIREMENT SERVICE
  • MUTUAL FUND/INSURANCE SERVICES
  • FULL SERVICE
  • DATA SERVICES ONLY

Contact your relationship manager to ensure you choose the correct membership and begin that process.

 

 

No. However, some memberships that have insurance functions, such as MF/IS, require a clearing fund as a result of other product capabilities.

 

 

The Fee Schedule page on the DTCC website lists service fees. Use the I&RS Fee Calculator to estimate your costs.

 

DTCC does not charge a fee to apply for membership.

 

 

Some NSCC Membership types that allow for insurance products, such as MF/IS, do require primary regulator approval, particularly if these legal entities are regulated broker-dealers. DTCC highly encourages companies to have regulatory approval before engaging our organization. However, although other factors are relevant, DTCC is willing to review applications on a case-by-case basis, as long as regulatory approval is imminent. This review is subject to the applicant meeting any other conditions DTCC deems necessary for the particular membership type.

 

DTCC only accepts applications from duly-formed legal entities, not from individuals.

 

If your firm is interested in becoming a member, answer a series of basic questions using the Prequalification Wizard. After you answer these questions, a DTCC Relationship Manager will contact you for additional details and to determine the right membership for you. You will then receive the application requirements for membership you need.

If your company has multiple legal entities with DTCC, it is possible that the user you created has an existing login ID under a different entity. Because you can only view users under your own entity, you cannot see their profiles. In these instances, create an ID using an alternate username. It is not necessary for usernames to match their email addresses.

Web Services


 36 MB is the largest recommended file size. The suggested total number of documents to include in the file is 6 (6 x 6 mb).

 

 DTCC sends a reject response with the reason for the error. You can also view the reject response on the Messaging Dashboard using the DTCC Portal.

 

User passwords expire after 90 days. Contact your Super Access Coordinator (SAC) for a new password. To find out who your SAC is, contact your relationship manager directly or email Insurance Support at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

If you do not see the message on the Messaging Dashboard, then DTCC never received the message. Investigate your connectivity and XML message structure to ensure proper delivery of messages.

 

 

The “Send Message” function on the Messaging Dashboard facilitates the ability to send a pre-defined request message to the customer’s destination URL on record. The pre-defined message is for testing connectivity only. These pre-defined messages do not always pass schema validation when attempted for processing.

 

Trading partners who are active or ready to become active with the web services product can coordinate testing between themselves. For alternative testing methods, contact your relationship manager.

 

 

The amount of time depends on the timing and accuracy for receiving the necessary information to become active with an I&RS web services product. The time is also dependent on the participant’s expertise with web services connectivity and XML messaging. If it receives all information in a timely manner and the information is accurate, DTCC can complete setup within ten business days.

 

 

The Messaging Dashboard lists web services transactions that do not pass the I&RS validation. You can see your request message reason for failure through this Portal application. I&RS web services processing also provides a response message or resend request message transaction to the sender of the request. If the transaction does not pass validation, these messages contain additional information.

 

 

In many cases, the message is failing and not passing the schema rules. Self-check that your message is passing the schema validation before sending the message to I&RS for processing. DTCC provides the same schema to customers as it uses for message validation. Also check the business rules, normally documented in the product’s implementation guide or data dictionary.

 

The Messaging Dashboard is a web application available from the DTCC Portal. It allows web service customers to view the latest I&RS processing status of their own messages transmitted through any of the I&RS web service applications. In addition, the Messaging Dashboard facilitates sending a ‘canned web service message’ for testing customer connectivity.

Each customer’s Super Access Coordinator (SAC) has authority and entitlements to offer their employees access to the Message Dashboard.

 

Web services timeout conditions represent one of the following conditions:

  • DTCC could not connect to the customer's server to complete the 'request' message transmission successfully.
  • DTCC has successfully transmitted a 'request' message to the customer's server, but I&RS did not successfully receive the expected 'response' message from the customer's server.

Perform the following internal checks to determine the reason for the timeout condition:

  • Make sure that the service is up and running.
  • Reference Messaging Dashboard.

 

 

All customer-owned digital certificates have an expiration date relative to the date of purchase. I&RS requires all web services clients to notify Insurance Support by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. in preparation of an expiring, changing, or scheduled updated digital certificate. DTCC requests that you notify Insurance Support at least 4 weeks in advance of the certificate expiration date or digital certificate change date. Send the entire certificate chain at runtime to perform a preliminary test before contacting DTCC to update the digital certificate.

 

 

When contacting the Insurance Support team, have the following information available or included in your email:

  • Your DTCC participant number
  • The region of inquiry: Production or PSE (Test)
  • The I&RS product about which your are inquiring
  • Transaction GUID (if applicable)
  • The date and time of transmittal of the message or data file
