Hawaii Re-Issuing Licenses for Personal Lines Insurance Producers

March 26, 2009

The Hawaii Insurance Division is re-issuing license certificates to resident and nonresident insurance producers who sell personal lines insurance.

The Homeowners-Personal Lines (HO-PL) and Vehicle-Personal Lines (VE-PL) insurance classes have been combined as Personal Lines (PL-ALL) to conform with the standards of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC).

“This is part of our effort to adopt uniform standards for licensing of insurance producers,” explained Hawai’i Insurance Commissioner J.P. Schmidt. “Uniformity helps to lower the cost of doing business and ultimately attracts more insurance companies to do business in Hawaii.”

The change affects about 1,400 resident and nonresident personal lines insurance producers. New license certificates are being re-issued and will be mailed to personal lines insurance producers beginning March 20, 2009. Upon receipt of the new insurance license certificate, personal lines insurance producers are being advised to destroy their current license certificate. All other aspects of their insurance producer license (such as license renewal date, renewal fees, and continuing education due date) remain the same.

Personal lines insurance producers who do not receive their replacement license certificate should contact the Hawaii Insurance Division, Licensing Branch at InsLic@dcca.hawaii.gov.
