Insurance Division License Renewals

Update:  April 1, 2015 Important Notice for Producers who missed the March 31, 2015 License Renewal Deadline: Vermont Producer type licenses expired on March 31, 2015. Accordingly, the license of a Producer who did not renew as of March 31, 2015 has now lapsed. Vermont does not have a “grace period” for a license renewal, and a license cannot be “reactivated”. Producers, whose license has lapsed, must apply for a new license in order to sell, solicit or negotiate insurance in Vermont. In order to apply for a license, in the right hand column under Licensing Information, choose the license type you need, and follow the instructions listed under How to Apply for a License.

DFR urges consumers to check insurance policies before sharing rides, rooms

The new “sharing economy” is changing the landscape of small business in the U.S. and Vermont.  Opportunities to rent everything from rides to rooms, golf clubs to cameras, are popping up everywhere and while you may be tempted to take advantage of these money-making innovations, make sure you know what your insurance policy covers.

Investors should discuss cybersecurity with their financial professionals

With an ever-growing list of financial institutions targeted by organized cyber-attacks, the Department of Financial Regulation reminds investors that it is important to understand how their personal information is being protected by financial firms.

Every day we rely on technology more and more, which could leave our sensitive financial information more vulnerable to unwanted viewing or theft if proper safeguards are not in place.
