Applicants will not be able to apply for insurance producer personal lines if lines of insurance producer property and casualty are already held or requested at the same time.

An affiliation is not required to apply for a license and the applicant may skip the "Affiliations" page on the uniform application. Please note that any affiliations listed on an individual application are not recognized as a notification of affiliation and are not recorded by the LDI. If an individual is to be affiliated with a business entity, the agency must file the affiliation after the individual is licensed.

New non-resident applications are accepted electronically. Amendments to existing licensees and reinstatement of license two (2) years after expiration as long as status reason is lapsed are also accepted electronically. Please do not attempt to reinstate an inactive non-resident license, which has been expired for less than two (2) years adjusters, using this program, unless the status reason on the license is anything other than lapsed. If applicant previously held a license in Louisiana that is now lapsed, applicant must late renew that license using the renewal product. If applicant's Louisiana license has been lapsed for two (2) years or more, or if the Louisiana license has been inactive for any reason other than lapsed, applicant may, only then, submit an application through Non-Resident Licensing (NRL) that will be processed as a new license application.

If applicant responds "yes" to one of the background questions please submit supporting documents electronically via NIPR's Attachments Warehouse.
