Diligent Effort / Disclosure Matrix

The FSLSO Diligent Effort / Disclosure Matrix details policy requirements if the coverage is exported.

The Diligent Effort / Disclosure Matrix was developed by the Florida Surplus Lines Service Office for the purpose of providing guidance on the diligent effort or disclosure requirement for each line of coverage, for both residential and nonresidential placements. Surplus lines agents should use the matrix as a reference tool for assistance with the diligent effort and disclosure laws pertaining to Florida surplus lines placements.

The Florida Surplus Lines Service Office does not provide legal or tax advice. Whenever agents, brokers, companies, or policyholders have specific questions pertaining to business practices, tax implications or statutory interpretation, we urge the respective parties to seek the counsel of a competent attorney or tax consultant licensed in the appropriate jurisdiction and area of expertise.
