Document Requests - Certification Letter, Duplicate License, License History

Prior to requesting documents, individual and agency licensees are encouraged to verify and/or update their contact information as indicated on the DIFS web page Address Changes.

Certification Letter – Some states require a Certification Letter as part of the application process for Bail Bonds producers, Surplus Lines Non-Resident licensure, and for Third Party Administrators. To request a Certification Letter, submit an email request to DIFS-Licensing@michigan.gov using Certification Letter as the subject line. In the body of the email, provide the name exactly as it appears on the insurance license, the 7-digit Michigan System ID number, and the licensee’s email address. The Certification Letter will be sent via email as a pdf document. The licensee’s email account must accept messages sent by email addresses that end “@michigan.gov”.

Duplicate License –To submit a request for a duplicate license, send an email message to DIFS-Licensing@michigan.gov with Duplicate License as the subject line. In the body of the email, provide the licensee’s name exactly as it appears on the insurance license, and the 7-digit Michigan System ID number. The duplicate license will automatically be sent to the mailing address currently on file for the licensee. Please note: We do not send licenses via fax or as an email attachment.

License History – If a license history from the DIFS database is required instead of a print-out from the DIFS Insurance Licensee Locator web page, send an email message to DIFS-Licensing@michigan.gov with License History as the subject line. In the body of the email, provide the name exactly as it appears on the insurance license, the licensee’s email address, and the 7-digit Michigan System ID number. The License History will be sent via email as a pdf document. The licensee’s email account must accept messages sent by email addresses that end “@michigan.gov”.

Licensees who need to inactivate their insurance license can refer to the Termination of Insurance Licenses web page. The appropriate process is explained in the section Request from licensee.
