Lines of Authority
Article 7 – Kinds of Insurance
To bring New Mexico into conformity with national uniform standards and to
streamline processes, New Mexico will now have six major lines of authority and four limited lines. The major lines of authority are Life and Annuity, Accident and Health or Sickness, Property, Casualty, Variable Life and Variable Annuity, and Personal Lines. The limited lines of authority are Lines of Authority beginning July 2017 Credit, Crop, Travel, and Title.
Descriptions of the lines have been replaced in the statute by a list of those types of insurance that fall under each of the six lines of authority. See §59A-7-1 through 7-9 NMSA 1978.
