UDS Resources

Uniform Data Standards (UDS) is an electronic communication protocol that uses a series of defined computer file formats to permit guaranty associations to electronically report insolvency-related claims – and soon financial data – to receivers.

UDS traces its origins to 1990 when the NCIGF, guaranty associations and receivers established the NAIC UDS TSG and later the UDS FTSG. These groups, whose members – claims, IT and financial professionals – came from the receiver and guaranty fund communities, over the years established UDS and spurred a growing acceptance and use of the protocol and its secure counterpart, Secure Uniform Data Standards (SUDS).
