How To Renew Your Insurance License In Massachusetts

Individual producer licenses in Massachusetts are renewed every three (3) years.

Your first renewal period will vary depending on your date of birth, but will always be between two and three (2-3) 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 $225 without a Property and Casualty license, and $300 if you do carry that line.

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

The state of Massachusetts requires that resident individual licensees complete forty-five (45) credit hours of continuing education every four two renewal period. Of those hours, three (3) of those hours must be in the subject of ethics.

Note: If this is your first renewal period, then you must complete sixty (60) credit hours, instead of the forty-five (45). Three (3) must still be in 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.
