A newly passed S.C. law allows licensed producers with 25+ years of licensure and who are aged 65 and older to be exempt from CE requirements. An online application must be completed to request the CE exemption. Please refer to the Bulletin for any questions you may have about this new law or the application process. Please go here to complete the online application.

Going forward, new and renewal applications, as well as most other licensing processes, will be submitted through the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR).  You will also have the ability to view/print/manage your license through SBS.  Paper applications and checks are currently only processed in limited, special circumstances.  Effective January 1, 2019, all paper applications and checks will be returned to the applicant without being processed.
