National Indemnity Exchange NIE Insurance
DLI Members Get 6% Premium in 33 States!

NIE’s Insurance Program includes National Fire and Indemnity Exchange (“the Exchange”) and policies from other highly rated carriers including Hartford and Travelers. The Exchange specializes in fabricare insurance. It issues Commercial Multi-Peril policies to drycleaners and coin laundries in 33 states. Workers Compensation and Commercial Auto coverage is offered through Hartford Insurance and Equipment Breakdown coverage is offered through Travelers Insurance. The other 15 continental states are handled in a similar fashion, except that Commercial Multi-Peril is offered through Hartford instead of the Exchange.

The relationship between DLI and NIE dates back to 1915. Back then, DLI was known as the National Association of Dyers and Cleaners (NADC). Nobody would insure dry cleaners, so NADC formed the NADC Inter-Insurance Exchange, now known as NIE Insurance.
