How to Renew Your Insurance License in Montana
How To Renew Your Insurance License In Montana
Individual producer licenses in Montana expire biennially (every two years) on the last day of your birth month. If you were born in an even numbered year, then your license will expire on even numbered years. Vice versa with odd numbered years.
Your initial license period will be between two and four (2-4) years depending on how your birthday falls compared to the date which you got 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 to renew your license, and the process will happen automatically, as long as you complete your CE on time.
Montana Continuing Education Requirements
The state of Montana 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, and two (2) must be in Montana Legislative Changes.
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.
