RE:
Agent Authorization Letter Requests

This bulletin is to inform you that we have created a group email, nyagentletter@stewart.com, for Agent Authorization Letter requests.  Rather than sending your request to an individual email, this new group email will ensure that your request will be handled in a timely manner.  In addition we have also created a new Agent Authorization Letter Request Form.  Please distribute the new request form to the appropriate people in your office.  The new request form is also available in our website.  You will need to click on the Agent Log-In and enter your Agent ID as your password.  If you do not know your Agent ID, please call us and we will provide you with that information.  The new form is on the Agent Resource page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 212-922-0050.
