Binding Authority

The producer is responsible for collection of the down payment amount as stipulated on the quotation for new business and renewals. A copy of the deposit check or confirmation of check by fax/email must accompany the binding request. The down payment must be received within 5 business days after the date of the request to bind. If the down payment is not received within this time frame, a Rescinding Bind Notice will be issued and the risk will not be re-bound without the underwriter approval.
