How to Renew Your Insurance License in Iowa


How To Renew Your Insurance License In Iowa

Individual producer licenses in Iowa are renewed every three (3) years. Your license will expire on the last day of your birth month.

Your first renewal period will be longer than the normal three (3) 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 $50, plus the $5 NIPR fee, for a total of $55.

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

The state of Iowa requires that resident individual licensees complete thirty-six (36) credit hours of continuing education every three year renewal period. Of those hours, three (3) of those hours must be in the subject of ethics.

At least eighteen (18) of those hours must be taken in a classroom or classroom equivalent. There are online webinars that can count as a classroom equivalent, but be sure to verify this with the CE provider before you sign up for the course.

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.
