How To Renew Your Insurance License In New Jersey

Individual producer licenses in New Jersey are renewed every two (2) years. Your license will expire at the end of the month of your license anniversary biennially based on the year which you first got your license. Your first license period will be anywhere between 18-29 months. After the first, they will all be 24 months long.

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 $150.

After completing all of CE, you may renew your license on the NIPR New Jersey Renewal web page.

The state of New Jersey 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.
