- Inactive Officer: If an officer has no duties or ceases to perform any duties and does not come on the premises, except perhaps to attend directors’ meetings – they should be listed in this section and under duties enter “Not Active” and no payroll is required for this individual.

STOP WORK ORDERS
If a client walks in your door with a STOP WORK ORDER, we recommend the following:
- Retain a copy of the STOP WORK ORDER.
- Include the Stop Work Order with your submission to the carrier.
- Once Coverage is bound, ask the carrier to send notice to the contact on the STOP WORK ORDER. The DIA will not accept notice from an insurance agent. Be sure the carrier, policy number, limits provided & effective date are listed.
- The insured should contact the DIA to pay their fees. Daily fees and the STOP WORK ORDER remain in effect until BOTH Proof of Coverage AND fees are paid.
