FAQs

Depending on what type of insurance agent you want to be or what types of policies you need to sell, you will need to choose what type or types of insurance licenses you need to get. After you’ve determined which licenses you need, you’re ready to take your insurance pre-license education courses. Upon completing all of your pre-licensure coursework, you can take the insurance exam. You’ll need to take one exam for each line of insurance you wish to carry.

Once you have completed your exams and fingerprinting, you are now ready to apply for your license. If you have more than one line of authority that you have passed the exam for, be sure to apply for all of those lines. Once you have submitted your application and have filled all the other requirements, your license application will be reviewed by the state. Your background check will also be reviewed.

The first step in getting an Indiana Insurance Adjuster License is taking pre-license education courses. These are state required courses pertaining to claims adjusting, basic insurance information, state laws and mandates, and professional ethics. To fill the pre-license requirement, you must complete a certain amount of credit hours depending on the lines of authority (types of licenses) you wish to attain. The next step after completing your pre-licensing requirement is to take and pass the Indiana Insurance Adjuster License exam. Once you have completed your pre-licensing requirement and exam, you can then for your license. Once you have submitted your application and have completed all the other requirements, your license application will be reviewed by the state which generally takes about two to three (2-3) business days.

In Indiana, insurance licenses expire every two years, but there’s no requirement to take another exam from the state.

The State of Indiana does require that resident individual licensees complete twenty-four (24) credit hours of continuing education every two-year renewal period. You can take your continuing education courses either in person or online as a self-paced course.

Once you complete the courses, the company who you took the course from should send the certificate of completion directly to the state. You may want to print a copy of this certificate to keep in your records just in case there is a dispute later.

You can then renew your Indiana insurance license online by using the National Insurance Producer Registry.  AgentSync can also help with the renewal process.

If you cannot submit a renewal application online, you can mail an NAIC Paper Renewal Application to the Indiana Department of Insurance. Be sure to include a check or money order, payable to the Indiana Department of Insurance, with this paper application.

 

There is a fee of $40 per application to renew your producer license.

If this is the state you reside in, then renewing your license will also keep any non-resident license you have in good standing. You will still need to pay the license renewal fee for non-resident licenses held in other states.  AgentSync can also help with the renewal process.

A Non-Resident Adjuster works on a contract basis for an insurance carrier doing direct adjudications of claims. Indiana does not require licensure for staff adjusters. An Independent Adjuster license is effective for two (2) years, expiring on the last day of the agents birth month, unless probated, suspended, revoked, or refused.

Reciprocity exists for all of the states, except; CA, HI, NY license holders. California, Hawaii and New York residents must complete an approved Indiana Independent Adjuster pre-licensing education course and the Indiana Independent Adjuster exam.

For Non-Resident Independent Adjusters in a state with reciprocity, there is a $90 renewal fee to process the application. All renewals must be completed via an application on NIPRs website.

For more information, contact the Indiana Department of Insurance.

Indiana adjuster license renewal is required of all license-holders every two (2) years before the expiration date. The expiration date of your license is set as the last day of your birth month.

Resident Indiana adjusters are required to complete 24 hours of continuing education (CE) every two years to renew their license. You cannot receive credit for any course more than once in any CE reporting period. Excess CE credits cannot be applied to the next compliance cycle.

There is an $40 fee to renew your Indiana adjuster license. After you complete your renewal application, the Indiana Insurance Department will email you once your license renewal has been approved or if or if you need to submit additional documentation.
