North Carolina Department of Insurance

We work hard to serve the citizens and businesses in this state and we do so in a variety of ways, some of which may surprise you.
You probably think the Department regulates insurance companies and agents — you are correct, we do. Any insurance business in this state first must be approved by the Commissioner, and companies and agents must meet rigorous standards before they receive a license to do that business. But did you know we also provide other services not directly associated with insurance? Some of the things we do that may surprise you include:
*licensing bail bondsmen
*overseeing motor clubs and collection agencies
*protecting consumers from fraud and illegal behavior with a staff of sworn law enforcement officers in our Investigations Division
*educating North Carolinians about safety issues such as child safety seats, fire protection, natural disaster preparation and other family safety issues
*interpreting the state’s building codes and suggesting new and improved codes to further protect citizens
*obtaining and maintaining insurance coverage for all state-owned buildings, including such items as the Battleship North Carolina in Wilmington and the campuses of the state university system
*assisting the elderly and others with Medicare and Medicaid questions through our nationally recognized Seniors’ Health Insurance Information Program
