How to Apply:
If you wish to apply for a debt negotiator license you should begin by first reviewing Connecticut’s Jurisdiction-Specific Requirements along with Connecticut's debt negotiation licensing statutes, which provides the current licensing procedures and requirements applicable to debt negotiators.
If your company already has a completed record in the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System and Registry, then applying for a license in Connecticut merely involves filing your company's record (Form MU1), control person records (Form MU2), and relevant branch records (Form MU3) with Connecticut through the NMLS and mailing in the jurisdiction-specific requirements to the Department.
