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, it’s time to begin studying for the Nebraska insurance exams. The next step after completing all of your pre-license coursework is to take the insurance exam. You will take one exam for each line that you wish to carry. In Nebraska, Property and Casualty are in a combined test. Life & Annuities, Accident & Health or Sickness are also combined as one exam.

After passing your exams, the next step is to apply for your license. If you have more than one line of authority that you would like to carry, 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 State of Nebraska does not offer a Resident Insurance Adjuster License and does not require a license to practice insurance claims adjusting within the state.

In Nebraska, insurance licenses expire every two years. The expiration will be on the last day of your birth month, and there is no requirement to take another exam from the state (but you need to make sure your continued education is up to date to keep your license current).

The State of Nebraska requires that resident individual licensees complete twenty-four (24) credit hours of continuing education every two-year renewal period. Three (3) hours must be on the subject of ethics. Credits cannot include the same course taken repeatedly in one reporting period.

If you have a producer license in more than one line of authority (ex. Property & Casualty and Life & Health), you don’t need to complete double the hours. You can take your classes either in a classroom setting or online as a self-paced course. The online courses usually require a reading of the subject at hand, then a test at the end.

Upon completion of these 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.

After you have completed your courses, you may renew your Nebraska insurance license online by using the Nebraska National Insurance Producer Registry online renewal tool. AgentSync can also help with the renewal process.

There is a fee of $50 to renew your license.

There is no requirement to take another exam from the state. 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.

You may renew your non-resident license in Nebraska by using the Nebraska National Insurance Producer Registry online renewal tool. AgentSync can also help with the renewal process.

Public Adjuster licenses are issued to expire the last day of the month in the licensees birth month. Individuals born in even numbered years renew their license at the end of their birth month in the even numbered years and individuals born in odd numbered years renew their license at the end of their birth month in the odd numbered years.

Non-Resident applicants must be licensed for the same license type and lines of authority to be eligible for online submission. Additionally, Non-Resident Adjusters in Missouri are only required to complete the Continuing Education (CE) requirements of their Designated Home State (DHS).

There is an $50 fee to renew your Nebraska adjuster license. You can renew your license online through an application on NIPRs website.

For any questions, please contact the Nevada Division of Insurance.

Nebraska is one of 16 states that do not license insurance adjusters. This means you can legally adjust claims in your state without a license, but only in said state.

To adjust in the state of Nebraska, you will need to obtain a Designated Home State (DHS) license. You will go through that state’s (Nebraska or otherwise) licensing process, testing, and compliance regulations and their license will act as your resident, or home state license. Once you hold a DHS license, you’ll be able to use it to get reciprocal license privileges so you are more employable and can adjust claims in other states.

If youre looking to become an insurance adjuster in a non-licensing state like Nebraska, the Florida 70-20 DHS License is the next best thing for the following reasons:
The state offers the quickest turnaround time after you submit your documents.
The Florida 70-20 license is reciprocal with most states.
A Florida DHS license is good for 4 years.

This is not to say this is the only way to obtain a DHS license, it is simply the easiest. Many of the licensing states offer DHS licenses. So be sure to do additional research to find the best fit.
