The Iowa Insurance Division brings enforcement actions against individuals or entities  related to violations of Iowa statutes or rules.  These actions are typically initiated by filing a Statement of Charges or Notice of Hearing and may result in an enforcement order against a producer or entity.  If a statement of charges has been filed against you or for more information regarding contested cases, click here.

Non-compliance cases are license disciplinary actions referred to the Iowa Insurance Division by other state agencies including the Iowa Department of Revenue and the Iowa Department of Human Resources.
