Surplus Lines Report Application

Surplus lines brokers are required to maintain records and accounts of all business transacted under their certificates of qualification. In accordance with Title 3, Subtitle 3 of the Insurance Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland, surplus lines brokers are required to make periodic filings with the Maryland Insurance Administration (MIA) related to their surplus lines business and to remit the premium receipts taxes they collected on that business.

Subtitle 3-307 of the Insurance Article requires each surplus lines broker or the originating insurance producer to file a quarterly affidavit that sets forth the facts referred to in Subtitle 3-306 of the Insurance Article and any other information required by the Insurance Commissioner.

All brokers now have the option to file their quarterly reports on-line by using a User ID and password provided by the Maryland Insurance Administration. Quarterly on-line filings may begin with the first quarter of 2016. Once the report is saved and submitted, no changes will be permitted on-line. Brokers will be required to submit revised reports via email to surpluslinefiling.mia@maryland.gov.

If you have not been issued a user ID, click here to register for an account. Only one contact (login) is allowed per company and application. If you have any questions, please email surpluslinefiling.mia@maryland.gov or contact us at 410-468-2104 or at 1-800-492-6116 ext 2104.
