How to Become a Member of the SLA
Only licensed, Illinois
surplus line producers can be members of the
Association — in fact they are automatically members when they get
their surplus line license.
When you apply for
your surplus line license, you will also need
to download the SLA Membership
& EFS Registration Package. Follow instruction sheet in the
Registration Package carefully.

Individual Membership. Any surplus line licensee may join the Association as an Individual member.
Filings for an Individual member are reported and billed under this individual licensee’s membership. Premiums and taxes will be shown on the individual licensee’s tax statements.
Firm Membership. This is a convenience for firms that employ more than one surplus line licensee. The
licensees are consolidated into a single membership and all policies filed are reported and billed to you on a consolidated basis. This can be very helpful when you are reconciling your books. One of
the licensees is designated as the “tax licensee,” and all premiums and tax due will be consolidated on that tax licensee's tax statements. The remaining licensees’ tax statements show zero, but must still be signed and filed with the state at the appropriate times.
