Divulging Actions When Applying for Agency Licensure
When applying for an agency license, if an agency, or person who directs or participates in the management or control of an agency, has ever had any administrative action filed against them in this or any other state, the agency is required to divulge this on the application for licensure. If the action is not reported on the application, the agency will be subject to possible denial or other administrative action.

License Cancellation for Failing to Maintain an Appointment
If an agent/adjuster goes without an appointment for 48 months in the class(es) of business listed on his or her license, the license will be canceled. The agent/adjuster will be required to reapply as a first-time applicant if they wish to obtain a new appointment. This means the individual will need to submit a new application, new set of fingerprints, pay the applicable fees, complete any necessary pre-licensing coursework, and pass any required examination.
