How to Renew Your Insurance License in Ohio


How To Renew Your Insurance License In Ohio

Individual producer licenses in Ohio are renewed every two (2) years. Your license will expire at the end of your birth month biennially based on the year which you first got your license. Your first renewal period will be between 13 and 24 months.

Example: If you got your license in May of 2015, and were born in March of 1990, your expiration date is March 30th, 2017.

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 only the $5 NIPR fee.

After completing all of CE, you may renew your license on the NIPR Ohio Insurance License Renewal page.

The state of Ohio 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.
