What Is The Procedure For Companies Interested In Licensing Its Agents?

Companies who have individuals interested in becoming producers must appoint them as producers with the state insurance department. Appointments remain in effect until the license expires, or until it is cancelled by the authorizing company. The fee for appointing a producer is $25.00.

Appointments will only be accepted where the lines of authority of the producer and the lines of authority of the insurance company are consistent. For example, a variable company could not appoint a producer who is not authorized to write variable lines of insurance.

Future applications can be made through the Producer Information Network (PIN). More information can be obtained from the New Hampshire Insurance Department web site at www.state.nh.us/insurance. Companies may check on NH licensed entities at the National Insurance Producer Registry at ­ http://www.licenseregistry.com/.

Insurance adjustors use a separate application that my be obtained from the state insurance office.
