Money Service Businesses

The division licenses and examines money transmitters, issuers of money orders or stored value cards, and currency exchangers more commonly known as money services businesses. Staff investigates consumer complaints and takes enforcement action as needed.

Companies dealing with fiat and virtual currencies (cryptocurrencies) must apply for a money transmitter license, then enter into a Limited Licensing Agreement (LLA) with the State of Alaska. See the MSB Licensee List under Consumer Information below for current licensees having Approved-Conditional status and a Limited Licensing Agreement. To obtain a copy of a specific LLA contact us via email.

All licensing activity is done through the NMLS system.
