New Agent Application Process

In the evening of November 9th, the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) provided notice to title underwriters that there will be a new agent registration application process beginning November 14th.

“We have prepared instructions regarding changes designed to speed up the Agent Application process, effective Monday, November 14, 2022.  Please read the attached instructions closely before contacting the Department to see if your question is addressed. The application basically remains the same, but it now requires the other  documents to be uploaded in addition to the Affidavit and the Agent Statement.

It also details updated instructions for adding DBAs or middle initials and for changing an entity’s name, address, ownership, or type.

Further, note that the second attachment is the revised Title Agent Application Form referred to in the instructions.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments at”

And please email or copy on your email to IDFPR as soon as possible if you have any issues with the new process so we can work with the department to avoid implementation problems.
