Massachusetts to Allow Electronic Filing of Broker Affidavit with Division of Insurance in 2014

The Massachusetts Division of Insurance announced they will begin accepting the Form BR-7 Affidavits for Insured electronically effective January 1, 2014. The Division posted information on this change to the new “2013 Surplus Lines Brokers Filing and Instructions” page of their website. The Division does not intend to issue a Bulletin regarding the electronic filling.  Brokers will now be allowed to retain the original “wet signature” Form BR-7 in their files and deliver an electronic copy to the Division as outlined here.

For additional information or questions, contact the Surplus Lines Auditor at the Division of Insurance directly at 617.521.7415.
