Effective immediately, the Arkansas Insurance Department plans to enforce legal name use. Individual applicants must use only their legal names on any documentation sent to the DOI.
Insurance Commissioner Allen Kerr explains, "The Arkansas Insurance Department has experienced difficulties recently in verifying information provided by individuals seeking licensure due to the use of a name other than the applicant's legal name."
Additionally, an individual must report any change to his/her legal name to the Department. Notification must be made in writing within thirty (30) days of the change.
