November 15, 2022: The California Department of Insurance has issued a Notice advising all California agents, adjusters, agencies, and others of new legal requirements pertaining to email communications. Effective January 1, 2023, California licensed insurance agents, adjusters, brokers, and other licensees will be required to include their license number on email communications. This applies to any email from any account that pertains to any activity for which the licensee must hold a license.
