RE:
Home Office Issues

Dear Associates:

As a result of changes in procedures regarding the issuance of directly issued policies, commonly referred to as "Home Office Issue" policies, it will now be necessary to send your Home Office Issue Policies to a designated District Manager for his/her signature. The District Managers listed below have been given the ability to sign and process your Home Office Issue Policies for your convenience. This should save you valuable time when trying to meet the demands of your customers for the timely issuance of policies.

The procedures will otherwise remain the same. Please be sure to send the policy to be signed, the T-00 form and the underwriter portion of the premium in check form to a designated District Manager. The District Manager will return the original executed policy to you, mail a copy of the policy to the office providing the title evidence, and send a copy of the policy along with the check to our agency accounting department for processing.

The designated District Managers and their office locations are as follows:

Mr. George Barnett
