Applications for AIUA Producer Access Authorization:
Currently, over 1,100 producers and over 350 agencies are authorized to access the AIUA market. AIUA believes this number of authorized producers is a sufficient number. Therefore, effective immediately, no new applications for authorization will be accepted. If an existing authorized agency wishes to add a new producer to their existing Producer Access Agreement, AIUA will accept the change to the existing agreement. If an existing authorized producer wishes to sell or transfer their existing AIUA book to an existing authorized producer, AIUA will accept the transfer. Any request for a new agency or new producer, not affiliated with a currently authorized agency/producer, will be rejected.

AIUA Procedures to Safeguard Policyholder Privacy:
In order to ensure that the privacy of AIUA policyholders is protected and that AIUA remains in compliance with applicable federal and state privacy laws, AIUA will only release policyholder information to the Named Insured, Named Insured Spouse, Additional Insured, Mortgagee and Authorized Producer of Record. To ensure the identity of the caller, the following basic guidelines will apply to all incoming phone calls.
We will first need to identify the caller. Only policy-specific questions from the Named Insured, Named Insured spouse, Additional Insured, Authorized Producer of Record, and Mortgagee will be answered. (Routine, non-policy specific questions will not be affected by this procedure.)
In order to verify the identity of the caller, we will require the caller to provide three (3) of the following items of information: Policy Number, Location of property, Mailing address (if different from the property address), Last (4) four digits of the insured’s social security number, Insured’s phone number.
Callers who are unable or unwilling to provide the information required for identity verification will be denied any policy-specific information.
Thank you for your co-operation and support.
