  1. Call or email the Arkansas Insurance Department to arrange a meeting and/or conference call with our Finance Division to discuss your proposed captive and obtain initial information.  
  2. Submit organizational documents to the Insurance Department for approval by the Commissioner. Once approved by the Commissioner, submit the documents to the Arkansas Secretary of State office, along with appropriate fees.
