Licensing & CE

The South Carolina Department of Insurance went live with a new back-office software solution, State Based Systems (SBS), on October 15, 2018.


Going forward, new and renewal applications, as well as most other licensing processes, will be submitted through the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR).  You will also have the ability to view/print/manage your license through SBS.  Paper applications and checks are currently only processed in limited, special circumstances.  Effective January 1, 2019, all paper applications and checks will be returned to the applicant without being processed.
