Tip of the Week: Annual Review Letters of Your Financial Instrument

ARC evaluates agencies' Financial Instrument amounts once a year and will advise agents 90 days in advance of their anniversary dates of the Financial Instrument of any changes. The notification is no longer sent via U.S. Postal Service. The letter is attached to an email that is sent to the Primary Administrator of the agency. Please make sure that you have a Primary Administrator identified in My ARC and their email address is up to date to ensure you receive the notification.

Agents are required to make the necessary adjustments to their bond, Letter of Credit (LOC) or Cash Security Deposit (CSD) on or before their anniversary date, or when a bond or LOC is reinstated or replaced. For more details on Financial Instruments please review Section D of the Industry Agents' Handbook or click here.
