How to become licensed as a non-resident Surplus Lines Producer
Only a person licensed for Surplus Lines in his or her home state may obtain a Michigan non-resident Surplus Lines license. The non-resident must also hold a non-resident license for Property, Casualty, Property and Casualty, or Accident and Health as the prerequisite license for Surplus Lines. The agency must obtain a non-resident Property, Casualty, Property and Casualty, or Accident and Health license. Both licenses must be in good standing in the home state in order to receive a Michigan non-resident license.
How to initially become licensed:
- File an Electronic Non-Resident Licensing (ERL) application, through the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR) website. The application/license fee is $110.00 plus a $6.18 transaction fee. An application is good for six months from entry into our database. For questions relating to electronic application submission, contact NIPR Customer Service at 855-674-6477.
- Letter of certification if home state does not participate with the NAIC Producer Database (PDB).
