Fees

​​​​​Last Updated: March 17, 2017

​Wisconsin insurance statutes require that insurance companies and insurance agents be licensed before transacting business in the state. The statutes have authorized the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance to charge a licensing fee to cover the cost to the state for administering this licensing function as well as fees for other administrative functions such as photocopying and service of process.​
