1. There is no grace period after the due date. If not renewed before the expiration date, your license and appointments will be cancelled and you will have to reapply with an initial application and $100 fee.
2. Your record must show compliance with continuing education requirements. Continuing education providers have 15 days from course completion to file the credits with the Insurance Department, so courses taken less than 15 days before the expiration date may not be credited in time for license renewal.
3. Make sure you answer all questions completely and disclose all information requested. You must report anything not previously reported to the Department. In addition to the information requested on the application form, licensed insurance producers are required to report to the Commissioner within 30 days any administrative action or any criminal conviction in any jurisdiction (N.D.C.C. § 26.1-26-45.1). This requirement to report does not allow you to exclude any criminal convictions. Please read Bulletin 2009-2. If you have any questions about what needs to be reported or disclosed, contact the Department before submitting your application.
Please submit the renewal application electronically by using the link below:
The filing fee is $25 and is paid by credit card or electronic check. Filing electronically will also require a $5 transaction fee which must be paid along with the North Dakota filing fee.
Hints for completing the electronic renewal
After your application has been approved, you can confirm your new license expiration date on the website's agent/agency search. You can also print your license one time free of charge. Click here to print your license. North Dakota no longer mails paper license.
- Your North Dakota license number is your National Producer Number (NPN). You must enter it twice: once when asked for your NPN and again when asked for your North Dakota license number.
- Your addresses cannot be updated by making changes on the renewal application. If the addresses are wrong or incomplete, file a separate address change request. Click here to file an electronic address change (no charge), or print out the paper address change form and mail or fax to the Department.
- You do not have to complete the section asking about your agency or business entity affiliations. This is not required for North Dakota.
- If you are completing the application for yourself, you check the "producer" box. If you are completing the application for someone else, you must identify yourself as an authorized submitter and complete the information requested.
The Department strongly encourages filing electronic applications, however, if you need to submit a paper application, click here to print a paper form.
Complete the form, print and mail to the Department along with the $25 fee. Paper applications must be received the Insurance Department by the last day of the insurance producer's birth month in the due date year.
