Please note: The list above is only intended to provide guidance and may not include all felony crimes. Under certian circumstances, the classification of a crime may change. Aggravating and mitigating factors can affect the true length of the disqualifying period. However, mitigation may not result in a disqualifying period less than 7 years. The disqualifying periods begin upon the applicant’s final release from supervision or upon completion of the applicant’s criminal sentence, including payment of fines, restitution, and court costs for the crime for which the disqualifying period applies. After the disqualifying period has been met, the burden is on the applicant to demonstrate that the applicant has been rehabilitated, does not pose a risk to the insurance-buying public, is fit and trustworthy to engage in the business of insurance pursuant to s. 626.611, F.S., and is otherwise qualified for licensure.
