1609-PR Image

Per Surplus Lines Law Section 1609, a written declaration from the producer is required (1609-PR). The surplus lines licensee must upload a signed 1609-PR image when submitting a 1609-SLL filing. PSLA reviews the uploaded 1609-PR image to insure it is consistent with the 1609-SLL data entered into EFS. If discrepancies are found, the filing state is set to “Filing Returned” in EFS (Electronic Filing System) and an email notification is sent to the Filing Return contact listed in EFS. The agency must revise/submit a corrected 1609-SLL filing with associated 1609-PR image.
