Thursday, September 12th at 4:00 p.m. CT: NIPR stops accepting online submissions (applications, appointments and terminations, and contact change requests) that affect the West Virginia Offices of the Insurance Commissioner SBS database.
Friday, September 13th at 4:00 p.m. CT: West Virginia’s professional insurance licensing operations using SBS will be unavailable.
Thursday, September 19th at 8:00 a.m. CT: West Virginia’s professional insurance licensing operations are available using SBS and NIPR begins accepting online submissions.

Changes for Companies: Effective September 19, 2019, all active companies will be assigned a new West Virginia company number. Look up your new company number using the free Lookup tool on the SBS website. Your NAIC company number will remain the same.
Licensees Please Note: License Numbers and National Producer Numbers (NPN) assigned to producers, adjusters and insurance agencies will not change.
