Illinois Surplus Line Overview
Welcome to the Surplus Line Association of Illinois (SLAI)! Here is some basic information to get you started:
It is illegal to deliver a policy or premium bearing endorsement to the insured unless it contains evidence of filing with the SLAI (the "SLAI Confirmation Number").
The SLAI generates tax statements and mails them to you. The DOI does not accept electronic filing of tax statements or electronic payment of tax. Electronic signatures on tax statements are okay. There is more information on our website about mid-year tax statements and year-end tax statements.
With limited exceptions, you must make a diligent effort to place every risk with licensed insurers. Diligent effort definition, exceptions and recordkeeping are covered in more detail on our website. See more procurement rules in our Procedures Manual.
