The following changes can be made within MyProfile:

  • Add a branch location or apply for a branch license (excludes title)
    Note: Branch locations or licenses can be added upon the issuance of the parent license.

  • Agent-in-charge add/termination (insurance agencies only)
  • Officer/Owner change (insurance agency only)
  • Remove branch location (insurance agencies only)

 

Branch Locations:

Any physical branch location transacting under the same name and FEIN must be, depending on the type of agency/firm license, licensed or listed as a branch location. For example, insurance agencies have a branch locations list and warranty firms have branch location licenses.

  • Branch licenses are applied through and maintained within the MyProfile account of the licensed parent location.
  • Branch locations list are maintained within the MyProfile account of the licensed parent location.

Officer/Owner Changes:

Documentation of the change must be submitted to the department within 30 days from the change, and documentation must be from the Florida Division of Corporation or the equivalent Division in the agency/firm's home state. The documentation must be sent to AgentLicensing@MyFloridaCFO.com.

Agency/Firm licenses that require officer/owner background checks will require the same background check on any newly listed officers/owners. This does not apply to current officers that have changed positions.
