You can find nearly everything online these days from groceries to coffins…yes, I looked it up and you can actually buy a coffin online from a big retail store. So in this world of computers, you would think that locating your insurance license information would be relatively easy, right?
In my experience, the easiest way to locate license information on your own is through State Based Systems(SBS). SBS is great because you choose the state you need, put in your name, and it will pull up your license information. SBS also allows you to print your license(s) using their License Manager tool.
If your state is not listed on the pull down menu for State Based Systems, I would recommend going to the actual Department of Insurance website to look up your license information. You can utilize this NAIC Map to choose your state, but it only takes you to the Department of Insurance’s home page, you will have to try to find their Agent/Agency Locator on the site. Make sure to pay attention to any tabs labeled “Agent/Agency Services”, “Online Services”, “Public Records Request” or “Insurance Industry”.
If you don’t mind paying a small fee to locate your license information, you may also utilize Sircon. Not all states on Sircon charge a fee to view your license information, but I have noticed that at least 50% of the states listed on the site do charge a small fee to view your information.
If you have multiple licenses and are limited on time, or if you are unsure of where you may hold a license, Insurance Licensing Services of America (ILSA, Inc.) can run a National Producer Database report to locate all of your license information for a small fee of $5 per licensee.
Now that you’ve located your license information, you may want to print your actual license. If so, please check out my other article, “Dude, Where’s My License Copy?”
