Insurers are required to submit a letter of application certifying that they meet registration criteria. The letter received from the applicants provides information relative to the areas they intend to do business in, attest to their company’s ability to pay claims as well as their rating within the insurance industry for the preceding business year.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Summary of Information Collection The purpose of this information collection is to assist the Secretary of Defense and Secretaries of the Military Departments in ensuring that established procedures are in place to protect our Service personnel from unscrupulous business people who would take advantage through the sale of insurance and financial products that may not meet their needs. On an annual basis, insurance companies will be required to complete a standard letter application, which is signed by the President, Vice President, or designated official of the insurance company, containing certifying statements that the company is in compliance with DoD criteria to register (or re-register) for solicitation privileges on overseas U.S. military installations. The registration application is forwarded to the Principal Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness for approval to grant the insurance company solicitation privileges on overseas U.S. military installations.
