NAIC Company Code Application—For Wisconsin-Domiciled Motor Clubs Only Only

A link to the NAIC Company Code Application form is provided below for your convenience. Note, however, that you will need an Adobe Acrobat Reader to view or print the application form, which you can download at no cost from Adobe . Motor Clubs need not file financial data with the NAIC, but are required to obtain a NAIC Company Code. This assists with the collection of demographic statistics by state and federal authorities. Once the NAIC Company Code is issued, it remains in force for the entire existence of the Motor Club. Wisconsin cannot coordinate issuance of a NAIC Company Code to a Motor Club that is incorporated in a state other than Wisconsin.
