SURPLUS LINES INSURERS

A qualified insurance company authorized in another state or country that is not authorized in Arizona, or an insurance company organized within Arizona (a "domestic" insurer) with special limited authority, may offer insurance on a "surplus lines" basis.  "Surplus lines" essentially means that insurance to cover a risk is not readily available through a traditional insurance policy from an Arizona-authorized insurance company.  In this case, a surplus lines broker can procure coverage from one of the following three sources:

  • Arizona Domestic Surplus Lines Insurers.  These are insurers organized in Arizona that are only permitted to provide surplus lines insurance - they cannot also offer traditional insurance.
  • Foreign Qualified Surplus Lines Insurers.  These are insurers organized and authorized in a US state outside Arizona that meet qualifications set forth in Arizona law and are permitted to provide surplus lines insurance when (traditional) insurance is not readily available.
  • NAIC Quarterly Listing of Alien Insurers.  Lists alien (outside U.S.) unauthorized insurers that the National Association of Insurance Commissioners has qualified for use by surplus lines brokers for surplus/excess lines insurance coverage.
