Eligible Insurers

Both SLTX and the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) provide a list of eligible surplus lines insurers in Texas. TDI does not officially approve or license these insurers, nor does it have the duty or responsibility to determine their actual financial condition or claims practices (TIC Sec. 981.063). TDI does not audit the finances or review the solvency of these insurers, and such insurers are not members of the Texas Property and Casualty Insurance Guaranty Association. For more information on the Association, please see Chapter 462 of the Texas Insurance Code.

The eligibility of the foreign (domiciled in the U.S.) insurers listed below as surplus lines insurers in Texas is determined by requirements listed in 981 TIC, Subchapter B and 28 TAC Sec. 15.8.

In compliance with the Federal Nonadmitted Reinsurance & Reform Act of 2010, the alien insurers (based outside the U.S.) on this list have been provided by the NAIC IID Quarterly List.

Surplus lines brokers are responsible for investigating the status of surplus lines insurers and must make an effort to place policies with only eligible insurers.

For questions regarding the list, please contact SLTX by phone at (512) 531-1880, or by email.

The table below is sortable by field.
