Connecticut insurance producers with licenses in their personal names will have new license numbers in two weeks due to a systems change the state Department of Insurance is adopting.
On Nov. 9, the department will start using State Based Systems (SBS), a web-based application developed by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). The licensing features in the application will enable agencies to quickly lookup and print licenses and education transcripts and run reports.
A NAIC flyer states that, effective Nov. 9, 2021:
- License numbers for all Connecticut Individual licensees will change to their National Producer Number (NPN). If you don't know your NPN, you can retrieve it by searching for your record on the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR) website.
- All Connecticut licensees requiring Continuing Education when renewing their licenses must be CE Compliant prior to submitting the license renewal application. The education transcript print function should enable you to quickly determine whether you are compliant.
Switchover to the new system will take nearly a week. The NIPR website will stop accepting online transactions that affect the Connecticut DOI database at 5:00 pm Eastern Time on Wednesday, November 3. Connecticut licensing operations will activate on the SBS at 8:00 am Eastern time on Tuesday, November 9, with NIPR transactions following at 10:00 am.
