P&C Issuing Instructions

Issuing Personal Lines Applications

The following are required ON or BEFORE the effective date in order to issue all policies:

  • Signed Applications – Applications must contain either a wet signature or an electronic signature in all applicable fields.  (For ease of use and accuracy we recommend subscribing to a low-cost E-Signature system such as Adobe E-Sign or Formstack Sign)  Be sure to read and familiarize yourself with each application as certain fields only require a signature if rejecting coverage. All pages of the application need to be submitted to Shari Brewer shari@aisohio.com by email, regular mail or an E-sign system.
  • A completed Instructions For Policy Issue form must be submitted. Available in Documents section of Virtual Office.  All applicable fields must be complete.
    • Insured’s Name.
