Email Address Search Report for Use by Insurers and Business Entities
To assist insurers and insurance agencies in monitoring their agents' compliance with the notice of change of email address requirement, the California Department of Insurance (CDI) developed an Email Address Search Report which lists all of the agents that are either appointed by the insurer or endorsed by the agency that do not have an email address on file with CDI. There is no cost to use this service.
If you need further assistance, please call the CDI's Licensing Hotline at (800) 967-9331 or send an e-mail to Producer Licensing Bureau. Please be sure to include your name, telephone number, license number and e-mail address in all correspondence with the CDI.
