Adjusters, appraisers and public adjusters who are licensed in their home state can also change their address online at www.nipr.com. Adjusters, appraisers and public adjusters who are not licensed in their home can change their address online by using the Department’s online services and creating an account at https://online.doi.sc.gov/Eng/Members/Individuals/CreateNewAcct.aspx. Once the account is created, the licensee needs to log into the system to update the address. This can be done at https://online.doi.sc.gov/Eng/Members/Login.aspx. Agencies can change their address by using the Department’s online services. Each agency is assigned a user id and password when the agency becomes licensed in South Carolina. The user id and password is sent to the agency with the new South Carolina license. Agencies can change their address online at https://online.doi.sc.gov/Eng/Members/Login.aspx. If the licensee is unable to change the address online, the address change must be submitted via US mail and must be signed by the licensee.

Cancel the license in the previous home state. After the license is canceled, submit an application online to NIPR (www.nipr.com) along with the license fee. A letter of clearance from the home state is not required if South Carolina can verify on the State Producer Licensing Database (SPLD) that the license has been canceled in the previous home state. To exempt the state licensing examination the producer must submit an application within 90 days of canceling the license in the previous home state. If the license in the previous home state has been canceled for more than 90 days, in accordance with South Carolina law the individual is required to take South Carolina’s licensing examination. All applicants for a resident producer license are now required to be fingerprinted.
If applying for a resident license, submit a completed application, copy of NASD registration or series 6 or 7 test results and a $25 license fee. If the individual does not hold a Life license in South Carolina, then Life and Variable must be applied for at the same time.
