ACORD members will soon have access to an old favorite personal residential application.

ACORD 80, a mono-line form used specifically for homeowners applications, was withdrawn from the ACORD Forms Library in October 2008 and replaced for personal residential applications by the ACORD 88: Personal Insurance Application - Applicant Information Section, the ACORD 89: Personal Insurance Application - Residential Section and their supplements.

The ACORD 88 and 89 support multiple personal lines such as personal residential, personal auto, personal umbrella, personal inland marine and personal watercraft. However, due to the technological and business needs of members, ACORD decided to return the ACORD 80 to the forms library.

"ACORD came to this decision after hearing from members that, while they understood and appreciated the versatility of the new forms, they needed to use the ACORD 80 due to their business processes and their systems requirements," says Ann Henstrand, assistant VP, Industry & Government Affairs and Forms Management. “Therefore, the ACORD 80 will be back in the library this October.”
ACORD members and ACORD Advantage Participants will be notified when the form is released.
