Announcing the New Electronic Signature Program

December 4, 2019

We’ve made it easier to work electronically with your clients.

You already know that conducting business electronically is easier and faster — for you, the producer and the client. It’s also the most secure way to collect and transmit client information — when you use a reputable vendor.

With our expanded Electronic Signature Program, you can now work with more clients electronically to complete fully underwritten IDI transactions.

We’ve included more vendors in the program. And you can now electronically complete, sign and submit all forms — not just new business applications. After you’ve signed the short, two-page Electronic Transaction Certification, you can simply download forms to use in your approved electronic signature account.
