Surplus Lines Renewals
Licenses for all Surplus Lines Brokers must be renewed in their birth month.
Surplus Lines Brokers must renew their license by the end of their birth month every two years. The renewal period will open 60 days prior to the end of the birth month. The renewal fee will be $100.
There will no longer be a renewal in April of each year. Surplus Lines Brokers switched to a birth month renewal starting in January of 2011. Example: Suppose a producer has a birthday in February. That producer had from January 1, 2011 to February 28, 2011 to complete the renewal. At that time the expiration date on the license was February 28, 2013.
You can check your license expiration date by utilizing the License Inquiry Service. The information provided by the License Inquiry Service may be printed for your records if needed.
Make certain your email address is current, as notices will be sent electronically prior to your upcoming renewal. Changes to your email address can be made using the "Update your email" link on Sircon.
If you have questions, contact Producer Licensing at the South Dakota Division of Insurance.
