Admitted carriers are insurance carriers that meet the financial responsibility requirements of the state and that use rates and forms approved by the state. These companies meet the statutory requirements of the state including capital, assets, reserves and surplus. A non-admitted carrier does not necessarily meet these financial requirements or use approved rates and forms.

When the voluntary market, which is the market provided by the admitted carriers licensed in the state, is unable or unwilling to provide needed coverage to consumers, the surplus lines, non-admitted market provides a mechanism for the needed coverage. The need for the surplus lines market arises out of the inability of the regular market to provide coverages, for a variety of reasons.
