    * Checks payable to Office of the Commissioner of Insurance.

  • The only paper attachments necessary are for any affirmative answers to the legal questions.
  • Sign application

Appointment Requirements

  • Insurers are required to appoint individual agents AFTER a license is issued.  All appointments and terminations are processed electronically.  No paper forms are accepted. 
  • No fees are required at the time of appointment.  Companies are billed annually for newly appointed agents.
  • Section 6.57, Wis. Adm. Code identifies that an appointment is effective 15 days prior to the date on which the appointment is entered on the OCI licensing system.  All electronic systems allow a company to back-date an appointment up to 15 days prior to entering them into the system.  The rule allows companies to appoint individuals upon receipt of a piece of business prior to appointment, as long as the company appoints the agent within the 15 day time period.  This complies with the intent of the Model Act, and is the way in which our market conduct examiners are utilizing the information during examinations.
