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/agents for fully insured policies written in Delaware.

As a Regulatory agency we cannot recommend one company or agent over another. In an effort to assist you further we have compiled lists of companies that are licensed to sell different insurance products in our state. We urge you to obtain quotes from several companies, as premium rates may vary. You may want to contact a local insurance agent/producer or agency to assist you in finding coverage. You can also contact our department at any time to confirm if the agent/agency you are working with is licensed in our state or if the policy is what you were looking for before you provide any financial information to another party.
