Insurance License Renewal

License Term

The license term is every 2 years ending on the last day of the licensee's birth month.

License Renewal Process

  • Renewal notices are mailed by the Wisconsin Department of Insurance 60 days prior to fees being due. To continue conducting insurance business in the state of Wisconsin, you must pay the biennial regulation fee. All notices are sent by first class mail to the residence address on file with our office and are now in a postcard format. The law does not require proof of delivery.
  • Agents who fail to have the required CE credit hours posted on or before the license expiration date will have their insurance license(s) revoked. Providers have 10 days to report your CE completions, so please plan accordingly to avoid a lapse in licensure.
