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

 

FULL REGISTRATION:
This type of registration 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.

 

LIMITED REGISTRATION:
The limited registration 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 list of states are currently recognized as meeting this criterion:  Arkansas, Florida, Montana, New York, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin.

 

CERTIFIED REGISTRATION:
A certified registration is only issued to such PEOs that 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.
