Need Insurance?

The principal function of the Delaware Department of Insurance, Consumer Services Division, is to help Delaware consumers who have insurance by regulating the actions of insurance companies and producers (also known as agents) for fully insured policies written in Delaware.

As a regulatory agency we cannot recommend an insurance company or producer. In an effort to assist, the Department has compiled lists of insurance companies licensed to sell different insurance products in Delaware. It is suggested that you obtain quotes from several licensed insurance companies, as premiums will vary. You may want to contact a licensed insurance producer and/or agency to assist you in shopping the market. You can also contact the Delaware Department of Insurance at any time to confirm if the producer/agency you are working with is properly licensed and/or if the policy is what you were looking for before you provide any financial information to another party.
