An individual applying to be an Indiana Navigator will need to complete a criminal background check and submit a copy of the background check results to the Indiana Department of Insurance (IDOI). If the individual is associated with an Application Organization (AO), the AO may complete the criminal background check on the individual's behalf. If the individual is not associated with an AO or if the AO does not perform criminal background checks, the individual may have a criminal background check completed by the Indiana State Police (ISP). Once the individual receives the criminal background check record from ISP, the individual must submit the record to the Indiana Department of Insurance. Background check records should be dated no more than 30 days before the date an applicant submits the online Indiana Navigator application. For example, if an applicant submits the online application on December 1, 2015, the background check results should be dated November 1, 2015 or later.
For Indiana residents, the ISP criminal background check will cost $7-17 (amount subject to change), depending on how an organization or individual decides to complete the process. The options and processes for completing criminal background checks are detailed in the table below.
