Insurance Producers

Insurance producers who maintain a valid email address with the Iowa Insurance Division will receive a courtesy renewal reminder approximately 60 days before their license expires.  Within 60 days of license expiration, all resident and non-resident Iowa insurance producers should complete the renewal application and submit the renewal fee through the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR) online system.  Iowa resident insurance producers with lines of authority requiring continuing education must be compliant before renewing.

In many instances, unlicensed personnel assist licensed insurance producers. Both the licensed insurance producer and the unlicensed personnel need to be aware of what unlicensed personnel may or may not do.
