The use of the NPN for all CE-related documents is mandatory. Ohio CE providers should not request or collect an agent’s SSN for purposes of reporting CE credits to the Department or for any other documents used for purposes related to the Ohio CE process. In place of using an agent’s SSN, the agent’s National Producer Number (“NPN”) assigned by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners should be used.
For those agents who do not know their NPN, the following resources are available for obtaining the NPN:
