The Maine Surplus Lines Bond is required by Maine’s Bureau of Insurance. The bond amount is $20,000. According to Maine’s Revised Statutes 24-A, all applicants for a Surplus Line Authority must file a bond.
The bond states that the bondholder, in accordance with Title 24-A of the Maine Revised Statues, complies with all requirements of 24-A.M.R.S.A. Producer’s shall be conditioned to provide full accounting and due payment of funds coming into the producer’s possession through insurance transactions under said license.
Aside from the bond, applicants must submit a completed application form. Incomplete applications may be returned. In addition, include payment in the amount of $165 which will cover both the license and application fee. The fee is the same whether you are a resident or nonresident of the state.
