Please note, changing the business entity address does not automatically update that same information for the individual producers affiliated to the entity. Individual address changes must be submitted separately.

There is no fee, UNLESS you want a new license printed which the fee is then $10.

Branches may be registered either electronically or by paper from our website at http://www.maine.gov/pfr/insurance/regulated/individuals_bus_entities/adjusting_firms/index.html#application.
