All appointments must be submitted by the appointing insurance company; not the licensee. Appointments, including special, travel, and baggage appointments, cannot be requested until an active South Carolina producer license is in place. Appointment filing fees are non-refundable.
The insurance company must submit appointments electronically through the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR) website. If the sponsoring insurance company is unable to appoint electronically, the company must submit the following original documentation to the department. This is required for both new and amended appointments.
