License Renewal

Effective July 1, 2019 business entity licenses will no longer be perpetual and will be
subject to renewal and reinstatement processes.
How to Renew:
Renewal invoices will be emailed approximately 90 days prior to the license expiration date. For your convenience and expedited processing, you may renew through Sircon or NIPR. Adjusters and consultants may renew electronically through Sircon.
If you are required to complete continuing education (CE), the provider will need to report all completed CE credit hours prior to the expiration date in order to renew the license. CE compliance is ultimately the licensee’s responsibility. To view a CE transcript, please visit and click the ‘Look Up Education Courses/Credits’ link. Be aware that the CE filing fee is in addition to the license renewal fees. For detailed information about CE, see the Continuing Education webpage.

Licenses must be renewed prior to the expiration/license renewal date. Failure to remit renewal application, payment of the license renewal fees and, if required, the provider CE electronic certificates and the CE filing fee by the renewal date will result in termination of your license. There is no grace period for submitting renewal applications, fees, or continuing education reports.
Business entity licenses may also renew electronically through Sircon or NIPR. Please note, in order to renew a business entity license at least one Designated Licensed Producer (DLP) must be assigned.   
  • To verify an assigned DRLP on existing license click here to perform an agency search.
  • To update an existing or add a Designated Licensed Producer to a business entity license please visit and follow the ‘Maintain Firm Association’ link.

What to do if a License Lapsed for Failure to Renew:
If a license is not renewed by the renewal date and the licensee wishes to reinstate a license within twelve (12) months of the lapse, the licensee will be subject to a reinstatement penalty equal to and payable in addition to the license renewal fee. The licensee must submit a renewal/continuation application, the provider electronic CE certificates and CE filing fee (if CE is required and not previously submitted), the renewal fee and the reinstatement penalty fee.
If the license terminated more than twelve (12) months prior to the desired reinstatement, the licensee will be treated as a new applicant. The applicant must apply for a new license, including, if applicable, taking the appropriate examination and providing fingerprints.


What to do if a License Lapsed for not CE compliant:
If the license is terminated for not being CE compliant, the applicant must complete the CE and verify the provider has posted the electronic CE certificates of completion of courses approved by the Department, a completed renewal application form, and a reinstatement penalty equal to the renewal fee must be mailed to the Department.


To Cancel a License and Avoid a Reinstatement Penalty:
A reinstatement penalty will be assessed if a licensee reapplies within 12 months of failing to renew.
A request to voluntarily surrender your license, if received by the Department prior to the expiration date of the license, will avoid any reinstatement penalty should a person decide to become relicensed within 12 months of inactivation.
Fee: None

How to Change an Address:

An address change request must be submitted separately. The Department will not process an address or name change request noted on the license renewal form.
