IMPORTANT PROGRAM CHANGE: 

As of 10/1/2018, HMIC discontinued the practice of annual audits for each Liquor Liability policy. Instead, the information needed to maintain accurate pricing has been added into their newly updated New Business and Renewal Business Applications. Agents will now receive their policy expiration list approximately 90 days in advance to allow additional time to gather the sales verification documentation from clients.  Sales Verification does not apply to auto-renewal policies and only applies to application submissions.
