On Monday, January 4th, 2021, Alexis Burns of Burns & Burns Insurance passed the PA Surplus Lines Exams. This exam includes 60 questions regarding insurance regulations and surplus lines markets and practices. Surplus lines insurance includes coverage for nonstandard or unique risks that would not fit the everyday business of standard or traditional insurance coverages. Examples of surplus lines of insurance could include flood, professional liability, or other unusual risks. Surplus lines can be viewed as a second level market when you risk does not fit in with the typical insurance coverages of a standard carrier. Alexis is now a surplus lines licensee, which makes her a duly licensed insurance producer who can place surplus lines risks with eligible insurers. Alexis is a great example of how Burns & Burns goes above and beyond to be your one-stop shop for all of your insurance needs.
