How to Renew Your Insurance License in Maine


How To Renew Your Insurance License In Maine

Individual producer licenses in Maine are perpetual licenses. You do, however still need to complete continuing education requirements every two years. Your CE hours are due every two years on the last day of your birth month. If you were born in an even numbered year, then your license expires in an even numbered year. Vice versa for odd numbered years.

Your first renewal period could be almost three years long, but will never be shorter than one year. This depends on when your birthday falls compared to the date that you get your license.

To renew your license, you must complete all continuing education (CE) requirements listed below prior to starting the renewal process.

There is no fee for renewing your license.

The state of Maine 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.
