In Alabama, an insurance professional that offers excess and surplus lines policies must be properly licensed and provide an Alabama surplus lines broker bond. Alabama defines a surplus lines broker as  an individual, corporation, partnership or other business entity required to be licensed to procure certain insurance coverages, called surplus lines, that cannot be procured from authorized insurers. The Alabama Department of Insurance requires a surplus lines broker bond on (Form AL-SLB-13) in the amount of $50,000.  The obligation guarantees that the surplus lines broker will fulfill all the terms and conditions of the Alabama Surplus Line Insurance Law, and the rules and regulations of the specific tax law mentioned in Section 27-10-31, Code of Alabama 1975.
