Madison, Wis. —
The Office of the Commissioner of Insurance (OCI) is responsible for administering and enforcing the insurance laws of Wisconsin. This includes monitoring the financial and marketing practices of individuals and companies. Each month, OCI publishes the administrative actions it has taken against these entities. The actions are issued by OCI when licensing applicants, or licensed individuals or companies have violated Wisconsin insurance statutes or regulations. In some cases, the individual or company denied the stated allegations but consented to the action taken. OCI strives to ensure fair and honest business practices to protect Wisconsin insurance consumers through this type of transparency. Copies of the administrative orders may be viewed online atociaccess.oci.wi.gov/OrderInfo/OrdInfo.oci.
Any forfeitures paid are deposited in Wisconsin's Common School Fund administered by the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands. Earnings from the Fund are distributed to all public K-12 schools in the state and are used by school libraries to purchase materials such as books, newspapers, and computers.
If you have a question or complaint regarding an insurance company or agent you can use the online complaint form on our website,
