How do we print our license?
The current process is for us to email a copy of the initial license to the primary/business email address provided at the time of application. The email will generally be sent within 24-72 hours after license approval and will come from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Duplicate licenses can be downloaded or emailed by visiting https://licensing.web.maine.gov/cgi-bin/online/licensing/begin.pl?board_number=1040. You will need your Maine license number and Access Code.
You can request a duplicate copy of your license here. Go into the ALMSOnline service using your license number and Access Code. Once submitted, the license will be automatically emailed to the primary email address you provide.
If you prefer to receive a hard copy of the license in the mail, you can request the duplicate by completing the paper Duplicate License Request form. The fee is $10 and the license will be mailed within two weeks.
Renewals can be processed via www.nipr.com or via the ALMS Online service on our website at https://licensing.web.maine.gov/cgi-bin/online/licensing/begin.pl?board_number=1040. If you prefer to renew manually, please wait to receive your renewal invoice via email and follow he instructions on the invoice. Invoices are emailed 90 days prior to the renewal due date. Licenses cannot be renewed more than 90 days prior to the renewal date. Renewal Dates and Fees can be found here.
Renewals submitted after the due date will be assessed an additional $25 late fee. Late renewals may be submitted electronically via www.nipr.com or by submitting payment directly to the Bureau of Insurance with credit or debit card information. If you prefer to pay by check, please make it payable to Treasurer, State of Maine. Please wait to receive your late renewal notice via email and follow the payment instructions on the notice.
Resident adjusting firm renewal dates are 12/01/even years. Non-resident adjusting firm renewal dates are 04/01/odd years.
Address/Contact information can be changed 1 of 2 ways from our website here.
- Electronically via ALMS Online with an access code. This will change your information for Maine only.
- Via paper form which can be faxed, e-mailed or mailed. This will change your information for Maine only
Please note, changing the business entity address does not automatically update that same information for the individual producers affiliated to the entity.
An adjusting firm can change its Designated Responsible Licensed Producer either by paper or electronically using the access code from the website here. In Maine, there can only be 1 designated DRLP.
Access Codes are included in the email with your initial license. If you do not have your access code, please submit your request via e-mail at https://www1.maine.gov/cgi-bin/online/licensing/begin.pl?board_number=1040 or call 207-624-8475 and request Producer Licensing.
Applications can be submitted electronically via www.nipr.com or by downloading the paper application at http://www.naic.org/paper_licensing/maps_paper_licensing.htm and submit by e-mail, fax or regular mail.
You can submit any Officer/Director changes via our website at https://www1.maine.gov/cgi-bin/online/licensing/begin.pl?board_number=1040. They can also be submitted in writing either by e-mail, fax or mail. We do not have a designated form at this time.
If there is no change to the Federal Tax ID number (FEIN) for the entity, simply complete the Name Change form found on our website here. There is no fee, UNLESS you want a new license printed which the fee is then $10. If, however, there is a change to the FEIN, it is considered a new entity and you must go through the application process.
Affiliations can be done either by paper or electronically using the access code from our website here. There is NO fee for a new affiliation or to terminate an affiliation.
A branch office is any office location, other than the primary location of the licensed business entity, that regularly conducts insurance business or that is advertised as a place where the public may contact the business entity or its employees concerning insurance services. Branches may be registered either electronically or by paper from our website here. The fee is $25.
Branches are registered specifically by location. Therefore, if there has been a physical address change, the branch will need to submit a new branch registration form and fee.
