New Applicants

If you are applying for a new preneed seller license or a preneed sales agent license please complete the next steps in the following order:

  1. Create an Account: Contact the Iowa Insurance Division by sending an email to to request an account.  In the email for your request provide your legal name, home address, phone number, and personal email address.  Once your request has been processed an email will be sent to your personal email address, confirming an account has been created and containing instructions for accessing your account in the RIU Filing Portal.
  2. Complete a License Application: After accessing your account in the RIU Filing Portal you may begin applying for a license.  Preneed seller and sales agent license applications are completed entirely online through the RIU Filing Portal.  A part of the application process requires the Iowa Insurance Division obtain a criminal history on each applicant, so you must complete a Criminal History Record Check Request Form and upload the completed form on the submissions page of your application.  DO NOT SEND THE FORM TO THE DCI.
