Maine State Insurance Licensing Requirements

HOW TO OBTAIN A MAINE INSURANCE PRODUCER LICENSE

The state of Maine has no formal pre-licensing education requirement however it is recommended as the prelicensing course is designed to prepare candidates for the State Licensing Examination.

Complete the prelicensing course.

    • Casualty
    • Property
    • Personal lines

Course requirements:

  • This is a forced progression (locked) state that requires the student to review each lesson and pass each of the chapter quiz before moving onto the next section/chapter.
  • Assessments on key topics throughout the course and must be successfully passed with a minimum score of 70% before moving onto the next chapter.

Submit your Fingerprints

  • The state of Louisiana requires fingerprinting.
  • You must be electronically fingerprinted at one of PSI Louisiana sites, during regular testing hours, on the day of your examination.
  • Fingerprint Fee: $39.25

Pass your state exam

  • Take advantage of the cram courses (Prep Review and Exam Simulator) within your prelicensing course during the waiting period.
    • Prep Review Course: This part of the training features content “boiled down to the essence” of the state exam. Chapters have only a few pages of material, but the content must be mastered to pass. Instructionally designed to teach individuals how to pass, most study effort should be invested here. Chapter exams are substantially larger (50+ questions), providing exposure to the types of questions seen on the state exam.
    • Exam Simulator: These special exams are designed to gauge content retention levels. Important: Only take the Exam Simulators after the Prep Review Course has been successfully completed. It ensures these questions will be “fresh in the mind”.
  • On the day of testing, you must present two forms of identification bearing your signature, one of which must be a valid government issued photo id.

Apply for license

  • Apply for your license online through NIPR website www.nipr.com or download application and submit by email, fax or regular mail to the Bureau of Insurance.
  • Application fee $25
  • If you answer “Yes” to a background question on the application, please submit supporting documents electronically via NIPR’s Attachments Warehouse. The documents may also be submitted to the state via mail, email, or fax.
  • NIPR verifies exams prior to allowing submission of an application.

Working as an Insurance Agent

Property and Casualty Insurance Agents

What can you expect working as an agent? Property and casualty insurance agents work with clients to help secure policies that protect people and businesses from financial loss.

For individuals many of these events include automobile accidents, fire, theft. For businesses these events can include the same as individuals but can also include workers’ compensation claims, product liability claims, or medical malpractice claims.

Life Insurance Agents

What can you expect from working as an Insurance agent? Life insurance agents work with clients to help secure policies that pay beneficiaries when a policyholder passes away. Life insurance agents also can help people prepare for retirement by offering certain types of annuities.
