Illinois surplus line producer licenses are issued by
Illinois Department of Insurance, not by the Surplus
Line Association. Illinois only licenses
individuals for surplus line licenses, not corporations
or business entities.
Surplus line producer applications and renewals are
handled through the NAIC's
Insurance Producer Registry, or NIPR.
Once you have submitted your application on NIPR,
complete the SLA
Membership & EFS Registration Packet and send it to
us. Membership in the SLA is a condition of
licensure in Illinois. There is no membership
cost, but your license will be suspended or revoked if
you fail to join and maintain your membership.
Illinois Department of Insurance has posted step-by-step
instructions on their website showing how to apply for
an Illinois surplus line producer license on NIPR:
