How to Renew Your Insurance License in Arkansas


How To Renew Your Insurance License In Arkansas

Individual producer licenses in Arkansas are renewed ever two (2) years. Your license will expire on your birth date biennially based on your original license date.

Example: If you were first licensed in June of 2013, and your birthday is in January 12th, then your license will expire on January 12th 2017.

As this system works, your first license renewal period may be shorter than two (2) full years.

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 $70.

After completing all of CE, you may renew your license at the NIPR website.

The state of Arkansas 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.

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.
