CT Producer Licenses to Renew at End of Birth Month Instead of Birth Date

Please see tables below for details.

 

Connecticut renewal applicants may submit renewals beginning 90 days prior to the last day of the expiry month. Continuing Education (CE) requirements must also be completed by the end of the birth month. There is no grace period. This renewal expiration change applies only to producers.
