NIPR Achieves 50-state Non-resident Producer Licensing Capability
The National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR) recently announced that individual non-resident licensing and renewals are available for all 50 states and the District of Columbia. With the implementation of initial non-resident licenses in Massachusetts, producers can now utilize NIPR for all of their non-resident licensing needs, according to NIPR Executive Director Maryellen Waggoner.
“For more than a decade, NIPR has been working with the states to achieve this goal,” said NIPR Board President and New Hampshire Insurance Commissioner Roger A. Sevigny. “State regulators and NIPR staff have worked closely to meet the needs of states while making the non-resident licensing process easier and more accessible for producers across the country.”
“This is a great achievement for NIPR and PIA congratulates Ms. Waggoner and her team for working so diligently toward modernizing our producer licensing system with 50-state non-resident capability,” said David M. Eppstein, Esq., PIA National’s representative on the NIPR board of directors. “Tremendous progress has been made, but more work needs to be done to complete the licensing picture. PIA encourages all states to fully utilize all of NIPR’s products to enhance a seamless agent licensing process.”
