Free Application Online Renewal Service
This Web page provides both resident and nonresident licensees with instructions on how to renew their license online by answering the same questions that are stated on the traditional mail in renewal application and prompts the agent to submit credit card (American Express, VISA, or MasterCard) or debit card (with the VISA or MasterCard logo) payment for the appropriate amount of the renewal. There is no additional fee for using this service. Credit and debit card transactions are encrypted and no one but the licensee and his or her credit or debit card company will have access to the card number. The renewed license(s) can be printed at Print or Download Your License after submitting the renewal and all requirements have been met and are recorded on your CDI record.
- This Web page informs agents and brokers about the law on the penalties for transacting without a license, education provider monetary penalties for noncompliance, and more importantly the requirement for insurance producer applicants and licensees to notify the Insurance Commissioner in writing, within 30 days, of changes in background information after an application has been submitted or a license has been issued.
This page allows resident individual licensees to request and print a certificate of license status online.
- This Web page provides license details on agents, brokers, and companies. To retrieve the information available to the public, the viewer may enter either the licensee/company name or the license number.
- This Web page provides a license applicant with the date that the California Department of Insurance's (CDI) Producer Licensing Bureau is processing applications and renewals. The renewal information on this page represents incomplete renewals that were submitted to the CDI (e.g. insufficient fees, lacking signature, background questions not answered, late submission). Completed renewals sent to the CDI are processed within seven days of receipt.
- Change your contact information directly online through CDI's address change system. This CDI web page allows California resident and non-resident licensees to change their contact information, such as e-mail address, phone number and FAX number, as well as change their mailing, business, and resident address information. Providing us with an e-mail address will ensure prompt notification of any changes that may affect your license. The contact information is updated immediately in the Producer Licensing Bureau's (PLB) database. There is no fee to change contact information. Note: This online service cannot be used if you are changing states.
On or before July 1, all insurers are to certify annually to the Commissioner that they have met the minimum standards of training and/or experience stated in the Workers' Compensation Claims Adjuster Regulations for all claims adjusters and medical bill reviewers.
