Company appointment renewal fees for the 2024-2025 license period are all due by March 31, 2024.
Company appointment renewal fees are due through the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR) for Producer (all six major lines of authority licenses), Auto Physical Damage, Medicare Supplement/Long Term Care, Limited Representatives, Title Insurance, Credit Agent, and County Farm Mutual Agent appointments. There are NO company appointment renewal fees due through State Based Systems (SBS) or paid directly to Agent Services Division. Adjusters and Hail adjusters pay their license fee directly through the NIPR license renewal process instead of the companies being billed for an appointment.

The detailed list of all appointments renewed with payment of the invoice pursuant to NCAC 6A.0501 (d) is immediately available by selecting the “Print Renewals” option when viewing and paying the company invoice through the NIPR website. The Department will have fulfilled the requirement of making the list available to companies through this NIPR option. If companies fail to produce the list after payment, they will be required to pay for a company list by using the Licensee Mailing List Order Form.
