8.  How do I submit a non-owner risk to the Facility?

First determine whether the applicant needs employers non-ownership liability coverage OR drive other car coverage.

Employers non-ownership liability applies to a business seeking coverage when an employee operates his or her own vehicle while conducting business on behalf of the employer. The applicant will always be the name of a business.  BI and PD are the only coverages available.  Often written in combination with hired car coverage.  Use CARS to rate the commercial exposure.

Drive other car coverage applies to an individual seeking coverage while operating non-owned vehicles.  The applicant will always be an individual.  Often (but not always) requires a financial responsibility filing.  Mandatory coverages apply, UM and MLPD (minitort) are available.  Comprehensive or collision coverages ARE NOT available.  Use EASi to rate the private passenger exposure.

15.What are the steps for determining the physical damage base rates for commercial trucks, tractors and trailers?
You no longer have to manually rate.  We have developed CARS so you can quickly determine premiums for all risks.

16.What is my commission?

Commission is 10% of the policy premium for risks other than long haul trucking and public passenger carrying vehicles other than school buses. For these exceptions, the commission is 5% of the policy premium. Commission is paid based on premiums collected. If the policy has a mixture of risks (for example, private passenger types and taxicabs), the commission is 5% of the policy premium.

11.What should I do if I am retiring and want to transfer my book of business to another producer? How will commissions be paid on transferred business?

Retiring producers need to advise (in writing) all servicing carriers with which they have placements that they are retiring. The letter should include the name, license System ID number or federal TID# of the new producer, along with the signatures of both the retiring producer and the new producer. In addition, please send a copy of this letter to our office.  The servicing carriers will pay commissions to the new producer once they receive notification of a change of producer.

 
12.Can the Facility write someone with an out-of-state or international driver's license?

Yes. According to the Facility Users' Manual, the Facility is available to "persons who (a) own a motor vehicle registered or to be registered in the State, or (b) have a valid driver's license, or (c) are eligible for the restoration of their Michigan driver's license upon the filing of proof of financial responsibility" (Section I.1.A.). Servicing carriers may request a copy of these licenses for their underwriting files.

 
13.How does the Facility monitor late applications during the holidays?

Example: The Post Office closes on Christmas and New Year's Day. The Facility allows an extra day for each day the Post Office is closed. During the time our office is closed, hand carried applications will be acceptable no later than 72 hours after the application is written.

 
17. Will Level 1 drivers be added to the policy as operators?
