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 New Hampshire insurance exams. The next step after completing all of your pre-license coursework or self-study is to take the insurance exam. You will take one exam for each combined line of insurance you wish to carry. In New Hampshire, the Property & Casualty lines are combined into one exam. Life, Accident, and Health is a combined exam as well.

Once you have completed your exams, 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 initiated by the application will also be reviewed.

The first step is to take and pass the New Hampshire Insurance Adjuster License exams. Depending on the lines of authority you wish to carry, you may need to take more than one exam. Once you have completed all your coursework and passed the examinations, you are now ready to apply 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. This process generally takes about twenty-four (24) hours. Depending on the results of your background check, the Department of Insurance may request more information or documentation.

The state of New Hampshire requires that resident individual licensees complete twenty-four (24) credit hours of continuing education every two-year licensing period. At least three (3) but no more than ten (10) of those hours must be in the subject of ethics. Credits cannot include the same course taken repeatedly in one reporting period. After you have completed your continuing education and you are within 90 days of your license expiration, you may renew your New Hampshire insurance license online using the New Hampshire Insurance Department website.

In New Hampshire, insurance licenses expire every two years. The expiration will be on the last day of your birth month, biennially, based on the anniversary of your original license year. This means that if you were issued a license in an even-numbered year, your license will expire on the last day of your birth month in even-numbered years.

Additionally, there is presently no requirement to take another exam from the state; however, depending on the format of your continuing education, it is possible that you may take a short test at the end of the course to be sure that you understand important concepts, laws, and regulations.

There is a fee of $150 to renew your license. AgentSync can also help with the renewal process.

Once this process is complete, your license will be renewed and your new expiration date will be two years from your previous expiration date.

In the state of New Hampshire, Non-Resident Adjuster Licenses can be renewed if the following terms are met:
If an applicant is submitting Adjuster Designated Home State renewal, the applicant will not be permitted to change the Designated Home State to or from New Hampshire.
