10pt. Size Font Acceptable for New TDI Forms

There have been numerous questions about the selection of the font size and style used in the forms recently issued by the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) that went into effect on Jan. 3. The official forms that were attached to the Commissioner's Order were published in a 12pt Arial font, and TLTA released the forms this way in our updated Basic Manual.

However, it has come to our attention that the larger font size is problematic for many in the industry as it requires extra paper and ink and creates some formatting problems. TLTA has confirmed with TDI that using a 10pt font size and a different font style is permissible. It's worth noting, however, that a 10pt size font is the minimum size required by TDI on policy forms.

Going forward, TLTA will ensure that all printable versions of the forms will be provided in a 10pt Times New Roman font for the body of the documents, and a 12pt Times New Roman font for the main headings. The font on our Basic Manual Online will remain a larger Arial font for better readability on the screen. If you need to subscribe to TLTA's Basic Manual Service, you can learn more about it here.
