How To Renew Your Insurance License In Mississippi

Individual producer licenses in Mississippi are renewed every two (2) years. Your license will expire at the end of your birth month biennially.  Your first renewal period will always be less than the full two years.

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

First renewal period: If your license expires eighteen (18) months or less from when you originally got it, then your CE requirements are only twelve (12) hours of education. Any longer than eighteen (18) months and you have the standard CE requirements that are listed below.

The fee for license renewal is $100.

After completing all of CE, you may renew your license on either the Sircon Mississippi page or the NIPR Mississippi Renewal page.

Mississippi 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.

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.
