New York Corporate License Renewal

According to N.Y. Ins. Law § 2103(j) (McKinney 2000), on and after July 1, 1985, all licenses issued to a business "pursuant to subsection (a) of this section shall be for a term of two years expiring on June 30th of odd numbered years".

Prior to that date, insurance licenses did not require renewal. The current version of the statute requires licensees to file a completed renewal application containing the requisite information and to pay the prescribed fees. Unless exempted, the applicant must also satisfy the continuing education requirements to have the license renewed. See N.Y. Ins. Law § 2132(h) (McKinney 2000).

Any agents licensed as corporations are affected by this statute. All corporate licenses will expire June 30, 2019.

Please begin your renewal process prior to then. If your license is not renewed, submitted business cannot be processed.
