How to Renew Your Insurance License in Illinois


How To Renew Your Insurance License In Illinois

Individual producer licenses in Illinois are renewed every two (2) years. Your license will expire at the end of your birth month biennially. Depending on your time of licensing as compared to your birth month, your first renewal period may be shorter or longer than two full years. The first renewal period will always be between 18-29 months.

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 $180.

After completing all of CE, you may renew your license on this NIPR Illinois web page.

Illinois requires insurance producers to complete twenty-four (24) hours of continuing education (also known as CE) per reporting period. 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, Accident, & Health), you do not need to complete double the hours.

The three (3) hours of ethics education must be taken in a physical classroom setting. You may take the rest of 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.
