Electronic License Request Application

UPDATE - the following wording has been added to the property/casualty broker license: An insurance broker with the property/casualty lines is authorized to act as such with respect to any and every line of authority except life insurance and variable life and variable annuity insurance.

Printing a New License

The Department no longer automatically mails paper licenses. As soon as a license is issued, the licensee should electronically print the license. Licenses are generated in PDF format.

To log in, the license number is required. Use the Producer/Licensee Search application (a secured Licensing application that allows you to search our Licensed Agents, Brokers, and Adjusters) to determine if a license has been issued and to view the license number.

Click on Electronic License Request below to print a license.

Obtaining a Duplicate License

A duplicate license is requested when a current/renewed license is lost or destroyed by the licensee. Before a duplicate license is generated, you will be required to attest that the license was either lost or destroyed.

Once a license has been printed once , there is a $15.00 duplicate license fee for any future license print requests. Credit card payment is the only payment option available for this process.
