Producers: Renew Your Insurance License Online, Even If It’s Extended
Members still have questions about their MA insurance licenses, so here’s a recap: Licenses that expire during the COVID-19 state of emergency will remain valid for 90 days after the emergency order is lifted. Licenses that expire after the emergency (even if it’s one day after) will not be extended. Unfortunately, there’s no way to know when the emergency order will be lifted. So, the DOI recommends completing your CE requirements and starting the online license renewal process in advance of your original renewal date. If that is not possible, the extension provides a safety net. READ MORE
