OIC Accepts Additional NIPR Applications
The OIC has expanded the types of applications being accepted through the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR) online interface as of December 20, 2013. New insurance license applications and renewals may now be submitted for the following license types:
Ø Resident producer (full lines only)*
Ø Resident surplus lines broker*
Ø Non-resident surplus lines broker*
Before this application expansion, resident producers and surplus lines brokers were only able to submit these via the OIC’s Online Services. When using NIPR, an applicant or licensee has the ability to submit several state applications or renewals simultaneously. This is particularly advantageous to licensees who hold multiple state insurance licenses. Access to the NIPR’s service can be found at http://www.nipr.com/.
For a complete listing of the applications which are accepted through NIPR, please visit our website (http://www.insurance.wa.gov/agents-brokers/alerts-information/applying-renewing-nipr/).
*There is a non-refundable fee charged to users submitting applications or renewals through NIPR in addition to any state licensing fees.
