Welcome to MSLA
The Mississippi Surplus Lines Association, located in the capital city of Jackson, Mississippi, has enjoyed over 14 years of service as we endeavor to protect consumers by responding to the needs of our regulators and effectively serving our membership. Our ultimate purpose at MSLA is to foster a strong, compliant and lawful non-admitted insurance market in the state of Mississippi.
Effective July 1, 1997, the Miss. Code Ann. 83-21-21(3), was amended to provide
that the Commissioner of Insurance may rely upon the advice and assistance of a
duly constituted association of surplus lines agents in carrying out the purposes
of the laws on foreign insurance companies contained in Title 83, Chapter 21 of
the Miss. Code Ann. (1972).
Established on September 18, 1997, the Mississippi Surplus Lines Association (MSLA)
was launched as a private non-profit association to serve this role and has been
recognized by the Commissioner of Insurance as the association upon which he will
rely for advice and assistance pursuant to the above statutes.
