Beginning with licenses that expire February 29, 2012, the Utah Insurance Department will e-mail renewal notices to licensees at their business e-mail address. The Utah Insurance Department has mandated electronic renewal applications. Paper renewals are no longer accepted. Please note that the renewal letter received is not a renewal application.

For resident electronic renewals, go to SIRCON.

For non-resident electronic renewals, go to SIRCON or NIPR. Electronic renewal is available 24/7 but must be done before 10 pm Mountain time on the date of expiration. Renewal fees are as follows:

  • Individual License Renewal (including Producer, Title, Adjuster, Consultant, Managing General Agent (MGA), Reinsurance Intermediary, Third Party Administrator (TPA)): $75

*All CE must be posted by the provider before a renewal will be processed. Time must be allowed for this process, therefore we recommend not waiting until the last minute to renew the license.

All appointments and designations will be canceled effective the expiration date if the license is not renewed.

The following exemptions are available:

  • A producer whose license lapses due to military service, voluntary service for a period of time designated by the person for whom the licensee provides voluntary service, or some other extenuating circumstance, such as long-term medical disability, may be exempt from CE requirements in order to reinstate the license.
