The license term ends on the last day of the licensee’s birth month at least 13 months, but not more than 25 months, from the effective date of the license and every 2 years thereafter. Adjusters must renew biennially on 10/1. Producers must complete their continuing education 60 days prior the license expiration date to avoid penalty. New Hampshire does not allow excess credits to be carried forward into the next licensing period.

 

CATEGORY RESTRICTIONS

Producers may take any producer approved course, they may not take courses approved for adjusters only. Not more than 10 credits out of the 24 required may be in the category of ethics.

 

SPECIAL TRAINING

• LONG TERM CARE PARTNERSHIP TRAINING - Before a Producer can sell or solicit Long Term Care Insurance, producers must be licensed with a Life/Accident and Health or Sickness, or Life license and must complete an 8-hour course in Long Term Care Partnership Training. Producers must then complete a 4-hour ongoing training requirement every 2-year license term following the initial completion date of the 8-hour training.

• ANNUITY TRAINING – Producers must complete a one-time, 4-hour annuity suitability course before participating in the sale of annuity products.

• FLOOD INSURANCE TRAINING – New Hampshire licensed producers who sell National Flood Insurance Policies are required to take a one-time 3-hour course on Flood Insurance.

Completions are reported to state entities within two (2) business days of the certificate having been issued. The state charges $1.00 per credit hour and Sircon charges $1.00 per course in order to report completions. These fees are charged to the student before the certification exam may be accessed.


 

NONRESIDENT PRODUCERS

Nonresidents who have completed their CE requirement in their home state will be deemed compliant for New Hampshire’s continuing education requirement. Nonresident public adjusters who are not required to take CE in their home state must comply with New Hampshire’s public adjuster CE requirement. Nonresident multi-line and workers’ compensation adjusters are exempt from the CE requirement based on their designated homes state or the state in which they reside.

Renewing a license prior to 60 days will not be allowed and it is the producer’s responsibility to renew their license in the allotted time, regardless if a renewal letter has been received.
