Idaho licenses both resident and nonresident individuals as Surplus Lines Brokers, but not agencies. Residents must carry an underlying Property and Casualty producer’s license for at least 2 years prior to applying for a Surplus Lines license. Nonresidents must carry Property and Casualty in their home state and as Idaho is a diligent search state, it is highly recommended to carry a nonresident Property and Casualty producer’s license as well. Not carrying the producer’s license only authorizes the license holder to place Surplus Lines business and requires use of an Idaho-licensed Property and Casualty producer to perform a diligent search. All producers licensed as Surplus Lines Producers in Idaho must register with the Surplus Line Association of Idaho.
