Law Change Authorizes Electronic Delivery of Personal Lines Policies

The Florida legislature passed House Bill 273 in the 2015 regular session allowing the electronic delivery of personal lines insurance documents.  The bill has been approved by the Governor and is now reflected in Chapter Law 2015-170.

The new law amends section 627.421, Florida Statutes, to provide that personal lines policyholders may affirmatively elect to receive documents electronically, including but not limited to policies, endorsements, notices and other documents.

The new law takes effect July 1, 2015.
