DescriptionThe Office of the Commissioner of Insurance (OCI) was created by the legislature in 1871. The original intent of OCI has not changed drastically over the past 125 years. In 1871, OCI was vested with broad powers to ensure that the insurance industry responsibly and adequately met the insurance needs of Wisconsin citizens. Today, OCI's mission is to lead the way in informing and protecting the public and responding to its insurance needs.

By Chapter 56, section 32, General Laws of 1870, the Secretary of State was Commissioner of Insurance ex-officio until the passage of Chapter 214, Laws of 1878, creating the office of Commissioner of Insurance, which office was made elective by Chapter 300, Laws of 1881. During the legislative session of 1911, the office was made appointive instead of elective.
