All appointments must be submitted by the appointing insurance company; not the licensee. Appointments cannot be requested until an active South Carolina producer license is in place. Appointment filing fees are non-refundable. The insurance company must submit appointments electronically through NIPR.
Producer appointments, including those for limited lines producers, renew in September of even-numbered years. The renewal fee is the same as the appointment fee.
