What Types Of Licenses Does The Insurance Division Issue?

Insurance companies doing business in Hawaii must be licensed by the Insurance Division of the State Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs. Insurance agents selling insurance in Hawaii must also be licensed by the Insurance Division.

The Hawaii Insurance Division issues the following type of licenses:

  • General Agent
  • Subagent
  • Solicitor
  • Nonresident agent or broker
  • Independent adjuster
  • Public adjuster
  • Managing general agent
  • Reinsurance intermediary
  • Workers` Compensation claims adjuster`s limited license
  • Limited licenses issued pursuant to 431:9­214, HRS

Insurance companies applying for a Certificate of Authority must use the NAIC`s Uniform Certificate of Authority Application (UCAA).

The UCAA consists of the Primary Application and the Expansion Application. The Primary Application should be used by newly formed Hawaii insurance companies seeking a Hawaii Certificate of Authority and for insurers, not currently admitted in Hawaii, wishing to redomesticate to Hawaii. The Expansion Application should be used by all other insurance companies already licensed in another state and seeking a Hawaii Certificate of Authority.
