When I get a new policy or update my cover, how long does it take to get on MID?
The MID can be updated 24/7. So, depending on the insurance provider and the organisation loading your data to the MID, it can be updated within a few hours. For some insurers the process is a little longer and may take a few days.
The insurance companies have a target of 7 days to get your data onto the MID (unless your policy is a commercial, fleet or motor trade policy, in which case the target is 14 days) but the vast majority of the data is on the MID within a couple of days.
