Veterans who passed any Texas insurance exam since early 2019 can now get reimbursed for the fee after the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs approved the state’s request, the insurance department said.
Veterans may seek reimbursement of exam fees going back to Feb. 1, 2019, according to the Texas Department of Insurance. Veterans may apply to the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs to receive the reimbursement.
In addition, TDI said the agency makes it easier for active duty military members and spouses to work as insurance agents or adjusters in Texas:
TDI waives the application fees for military spouses who have an insurance license in another state. When they apply for their Texas license, they simply need to provide proof of Texas residency, their military identification, and their insurance credentials from their home state.
Military members with an insurance license get a break on their career education while they’re deployed to a combat area. They simply need to provide a copy of their orders.
TDI worked with its exam vendor to add insurance exam sites on military bases around the state.
