Insurance Company Search

If you wish to visit our Company Directory in the future, please bookmark this page in your Favorites.

Our Insurance Company Search represents the most current information maintained by the New York State Department of Financial Services.  Because companies are continuously being admitted to and withdrawing from New York, and because licensed companies add and delete lines of insurance business from their licenses or change their names, there may be a brief time gap between applying such changes and presenting the new licensing status information in our Directory.  The fact that a company appears in our Directory does not necessarily mean that the company currently writes business. Companies may have decided to stop writing, but maintain their licenses, while others may have been placed into rehabilitation by the courts. A company in rehabilitation still maintains a New York license.
