A Surplus Lines Broker is a broker who is licensed to place coverage with non-admitted insurers. Non admitted insurance companies are insurers not licensed to do business in a given state. Surplus lines insurers can write coverage through a surplus lines broker if the broker is licensed in the state where coverage is being written.
To be able to apply for a Surplus License in Georgia, applicants must first hold an active Georgia agent-resident property and resident casualty license. They must also take the examination although the NIPR states that they can be given a waiver for the examination if they hold a CPCU designation.
Additionally, all applicants must submit a Georgia Surplus Lines Broker Bond in the amount of $50,000 issued by a surety company licensed to do business in Georgia. Note: Surety1 represents over a dozen “A” rated surety markets that are all licensed in Georgia!
