Professional Employer Organization (PEO)

Renewal Requirements  (Please click here for initial registration)

Pursuant to Indiana Code (IC) 27-16, a Professional Employer Organization doing business in Indiana must renew their registration with the Indiana Department of Insurance (additional guidance is also provided in Rule 760 IAC 1-73).  There are three ways to renew:

This type of renewal is for a PEO that is domiciled in Indiana or is located in a state whose licensure or registration requirements are not substantially similar or more restrictive pursuant to IC 27-16-4-6.

The limited renewal is reserved for a PEO that is domiciled, licensed or registered in a state other than Indiana, but said state has registration requirements that are substantially similar or more restrictive pursuant to IC 27-16-4-6.  The following states are currently recognized as meeting this criterion:  Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Montana, New York, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin.

A certified renewal is only issued to such PEOs as are approved by an Independent National Organization.  Employer Services Assurance Corporation (ESAC) is an approved Independent National Organization for certifying PEO applicants for registration in Indiana.
