For Producers:

You may access license and demographic information on agents and firms licensed to sell insurance in Maryland through our online licensing system using the link on the left above.

 

Information about Orders against a Producer is available on this website under Producer Enforcement.
As of 2004, Maryland no longer requires insurers to report notices of appointments or terminations, except "for cause" terminations. Therefore, no appointment information regarding producers is available.

 

For more detailed information or if you have specific questions about a Company or Producer, please call the Company or Producer directly. Also, please contact the Company directly if you have questions about policies issued by that Company under an earlier name.
