What is Online Insurance?

Online Insurance is L&I's online system that allows approved insurance agents to submit general liability insurance certificates for construction and electrical telecom contractors online 24/7. This includes policy renewals, cancellations, reinstatements and new insurer information. The entries will be "real time," which means that as soon as an agent submits the insurance online it will be reflected in L&I's internal system and on the 'LookUp a Contractor' site.

How do we sign up?

You must download and complete an Application for Agent Online Insurance Entry Access form (F625-110-000).

You may scan it and email it to EBIPSAgencyApp@Lni.wa.gov or fax it to 360-902-5812, or mail it to P.O. Box 44450 Olympia, Washington 98501-4450. The form will be processed and you will be notified by email with further instructions. Please note, this email address is not to be used for sending insurance certificates. Certificates emailed to this address will not be processed.

If the insurance is entered online will we need to mail or email a copy of the certificate?

No, please do not send us a paper copy.

When must a certificate be entered to avoid a contractor from being suspended?

A suspension will be avoided if both of the following are true:

  • The insurance is entered into the online system on or before the expiration/cancellation date of the current policy, and
  • The effective date of the new policy or the reinstatement date of the cancelled policy is on or before the expiration or cancellation date.

What happens if the insurance is entered online and the contractor is already suspended?

The insurance will be posted to the contractor record. The contractor's registration will still be in suspended status until the reinstatement fee and any other requirements have been met.

Can I pay a reinstatement fee online?

Yes. To pay a reinstatement fee online go to: http://www.lni.wa.gov/TradesLicensing/LicensingReq/Legal.asp.

Can I enter insurance for a brand new contractor online?

If an application has been submitted to the department and a license/registration is in 'Unprocessed' status you may then submit insurance online.

Can the online program be used to add insurance to telecom electrical contractors?

Yes, but only to 09 telecom electrical contractors. Other electrical contractors do not require insurance.

Can bonds be entered online?

Not at this time but we hope to have that available in the future.
