How to Renew Your Insurance License in Alaska
Individual producer licenses in Alaska are renewed ever two (2) years. Your license will expire at the end of your birth month biennially based on your birth year. This is a new change as of August 2016. Licenses used to expire biennially on the birth date of the producer. All new licenses will expire at the end of the birth month. Any licensees who were licensed before August of 2016 will change into the new system after their next renewal.
Example: If you were first licensed in June of 2013, and your birthday is in January of 1988, then your license will expire on January 31st 2018.
As this system works, your first license renewal period may be shorter than two (2) full years. If this is the case, no continuing education (CE) credits are required for your first renewal. You must still apply for renewal and pay the accompanying fee.
To renew your license, you must complete all continuing education (CE) requirements listed below prior to starting the renewal process.
The fee for license renewal is $75.
After completing all of CE, you may renew your license at the NIPR website.
Alaska Continuing Education Requirements
The state of Alaska requires that resident individual licensees complete twenty-four (24) credit hours of continuing education every two year renewal period. Of those hours, three (3) of those hours must be in the subject of ethics. No more than eight (8) hours can be in management, marketing, sales, or training.
If you have a producer license in more than one line of authority (ex. Property & Casualty and Life & Health), you do not need to complete double the hours.
You may take your continuing education courses either in person in a classroom setting or online as a self-paced course. The online courses usually require reading of the subject at hand, then a test at the end.
Upon completion of these courses, the company who you took the course should send the certificate of completion directly to the state. You should, however, print a copy of this certificate to keep in your records just in case there is a dispute later.
StateRequirement recommends Kaplan Education Company for all insurance CE courses.
You may look up your education transcript with the Education Transcript Search on State Based Systems.
