Using the Search

To select multiple business types, hold the CTRL button on your keyboard when selecting with your mouse:

Tips for License Lookup

  • Addresses listed on OSBC Online are the physical address – some locations may have a separate mailing address.
  • When searching by name, include the beginning of the name of the institution for best results.

Lookup a Licensed Mortgage Company, Consumer Credit Company, Money Transmitter, or Other Financial Company

Using NMLS (the Nationwide Multi-State Licensing System) Consumer Access, a wide variety of non-bank financial companies can be searched to verify license status.

Consider the following when performing your searches:

  • For best results, enter the full NMLS ID or State License Number to search for a Company or Individual.
  • If you do not know the NMLS ID or State License Number, you also may search by Name, City, State, and/or Zip Code. Use multiple search terms (e.g., Company Name and Zip Code) to increase the likelihood the Company or Individual you are searching for will appear on the first page of search results.
    • Note: Search results include Companies and Individuals that match on ALL entered search terms. Providing additional search terms will reduce the number of results. For example, use “John Smith New York” or “John Smith 10006” instead of “John Smith”.
  • Searches may contain up to 100 characters and no more than 10 search terms. Separate multiple search terms with a space (e.g. Rockville Maryland). Do not use commas or other punctuation to separate search terms.
  • When using words for search terms, the search will only return results including exact matches to City, State, or full words in the Name. For example, searching for “Nation” will not find Companies with “National” in their name; you must specify “National” as one of your search terms.
  • You can filter your search results by Company or Individual and/or regulator by using the filtering criteria options available when viewing the search results.

License Renewals

Some licenses are now able to be renewed on OSBC Online. If your license is eligible, you will be instructed to file your renewal online prior to the expiration date.
