OTHER PFR AGENCIES
Appointment & Termination Instructions
Pursuant to Title 24-A §1420-M (1), and (2), an insurance producer may not act as an agent of an insurer unless the insurance producer becomes an appointed agent of that insurer. To appoint a producer as its agent, the appointing insurer shall file, in a format approved by the superintendent, a notice of appointment within 15 days from the date the agency contract is executed or the first insurance application is submitted.
Please be aware that the State of Maine does not require an appointment for branch locations of business entities (agencies). Only the primary location needs to be appointed.
Insurers may appoint individuals and/or business entities using the following two methods:
1) Electronic Submissions: The Bureau is a participating state in the National Insurance Producer Registry’s Electronic Appointment/Termination system. To obtain information on subscribing to this service, please contact the NIPR Help Line at 816-783-8468.
2) Paper Submissions:
For paper submissions, insurers must use the Appointment/Termination form that is available on our website to report and pay for producer appointments.
No confirmation of appointment will be sent to the insurer. Confirmation that the Bureau of Insurance has received and processed the appointment can be verified on our website.
Special Note: Please do not submit the appointment form with applications for licensure. The form is to be submitted after the individual/business entity has become licensed.
Completion of form:
Change in Appointment fees: Appointments are now per licensee, per company, no matter how many authorities the licensee holds. If adding a new authority and the licensee is already appointed to the company, no new appointment is needed.
Following is a list of individual and business entity (agency) prefixes that can hold an insurance company appointment in Maine (any other prefix is not acceptable):
Resident Prefixes: @$30 per licensee, per company
PRR & PLR = Resident Producers
Nonresident Prefixes: @$70 per licensee, per company
PRN & PLN = Nonresident Producers
Payment: Make checks payable to: Treasurer, State of Maine
