New York Increases Requirements for Excess Line Insurers

April 21, 2011

A new regulation that goes into effect in New York this month will force excess line insurers to triple their minimum policyholders surplus to $45 million by the middle of 2013.

For eligible excess line insurers already in the state, the regulation allows them to increase that minimum in steps over the next two years, according to the Excess Line Association of New York (ELANY). The current minimum is $15 million, which will raise to $25 million by July, $35 million by Jan. 1, 2012 and $45 million by the beginning of 2013.
