An MAIA member-only benefit
MAIA members can now access ACORD forms at no charge within their agency. This benefit is a great cost-saving measure for agents, and is only available through membership in MAIA. Recognized as an industry leader in insurance forms, ACORD has maintained a list of industry-specific forms for almost 50 years. ACORD has implemented a new fee structure for end user licenses (EUL), and while the fees were previously built into management system fees for both forms and EUL, the new fee structure required that agents obtain their own licenses directly from ACORD, but will still access forms directly from their agency management system.
MAIA's national associations, IIABA and PIA, have each worked to ensure that MAIA members will not incur EUL fees when accessing necessary ACORD forms. Those MAIA members with less than $50 million in annual property and casualty revenue will receive an EUL at no charge as part of their MAIA membership, a valuable benefit that can only be obtained through membership with the association. This benefit alone could represent savings of up to $2,500 for an agency, based upon the size of the agency.
