Small Loan Lender Licensing
Please reference the relevant Connecticut Statutes (§§ 36a-555 to 36a-573, inclusive) as amended by Section 4 of Public Act 15-53, and Sections 13 and 18 of Public Act 15-235 and Regulations before applying for a license.
If you wish to apply for a small loan lender license you should begin by first reviewing Connecticut’s Jurisdiction-Specific Requirements along with Connecticut's small loan company licensing statutes, which provides the current licensing procedures and requirements applicable to small loan lenders.
All new applications must be submitted to the Department via the Nationwide Multistate Licensing and Registry.
If your company already has a completed record in the National Mortgage Licensing System, 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 required jurisdiction-specific requirements to the Department.
Go to the Getting Started page of the NMLS website and follow the steps outlined.
Any questions relating to the NMLS should be directed to the NMLS Call Center at (855) 665-7123.
