Insurance License Renewal
- Producers: license expiration dates will be the last day of the birth month that occurs at least 13 full months, but not more than 25 months, from the effective date of the license, expiration dates will be every 2 years thereafter.
- Adjusters: the license renewal date is 10/1 biennially.
- CE must be completed 60 days prior to license expiration to avoid penalty.
Note: In order to avoid duplication of NH courses, please follow these instructions. When entering the License Renewal Date in the WebCE account, the licensee must enter the Compliance Period ending date instead of the License Expiration Date. For example: If on the licensees NH SBS transcript the Compliance Period is 06/01/2013 - 05/31/2015, and License Expiration Date is 7/31/2015. The Compliance Period ending date of 5/31/2015, should be entered in the License Renewal Date field in the licensees WebCE account.
License Renewal Process
A renewal notice with instructions will be emailed to a producer's email address of record approximately 60 days prior to license expiration. A producer cannot renew a license prior to 60 days before expiration. Non-receipt of an email renewal notice does not negate a producer's responsibility to renew his or her license. All resident producers with major lines of authority must be CE compliant prior to renewal.
