How to Renew Your New York Adjuster License

NY adjuster license renewal is a simple process. Essentially, you’ll just need to submit your renewal application before the expiration date. 

If, however, you hold licenses from other states, you may have an additional requirement. This guide will walk you through the process step-by-step.

New York adjuster licenses expire on December 31st of even-numbered years.

You can find your expiration date using the New York DFS license lookup tool or log into your NYDFS Portal.

Step 1: New York Adjuster License Renewal Application

The first step to renew your New York adjuster license is to submit your renewal application during the renewal window.

The New York Department of Financial Services will send you a renewal notice when the renewal window opens – 180 days before the expiration date.

If you’ve changed your mailing or email address since your last renewal, be sure to update your information in NYDFS so you don’t miss any correspondence from the state.

Submit your renewal using the NYDFS Portal.

The adjuster license renewal fee is: $100

Note

New York doesn’t have a continuing education requirement for adjuster licenses.

If you have non-resident licenses in states that do require CE, you’ll need to select a “CE State” and fill their CE requirement.

Step 2: Continuing Education for Non-Resident Licenses

Since New York doesn’t have a continuing education requirement, an issue is created for the non-resident licenses you hold.

Non-resident licenses generally reciprocate CE credits from your home state. But since New York doesn’t have a CE requirement, your non-resident licenses don’t have a state to reciprocate from.

To solve this issue, you’ll use what’s called a CE State.

If you have non-resident licenses, you’ll still need to take continuing education. If you don’t have any non-resident licenses, you can skip this step.

CE State

In order to fill the CE requirement for your non-resident licenses, you’ll create a CE State by:

  1. Of the non-resident licenses you hold, choose a state that has a sufficient CE requirement (24 hours, 3 in ethics) – This will be your CE State
  2. Complete a continuing education course for your CE state
  3. Keep records of all CE credit hours you complete

Texas is the most common choice for CE State. If you don’t have a non-resident license in Texas, Florida is another common choice for CE State.

New York Non-Resident Adjuster License Renewal

Non-Resident Renewal

Continuing Education

CE | Follow your home state

Renewing your non-resident New York adjuster license is simple. The process includes keeping your home state license in good standing, and applying for renewal before the expiration date.

Keeping your home state license in good standing essentially means keeping up with your continuing education and renewing on time.

If that’s in order, all you have to do is submit your New York non-resident adjuster license renewal.

Submit your renewal using the NYDFS Portal.

The non-resident adjuster license renewal fee is: $100

License expiration dates from home states and non-resident states don’t often line up, so tracking all of your license data in a spreadsheet or calendar is a wise move.

Note

If your home state or designated home state doesn’t have a continuing education requirement (AZ, CT, HI, ME, MI, NY, RI, SC, VT), you still need to complete CE to sustain your non-resident licenses.

The generally accepted solution to this issue is to use a CE State (see instructions above).

New York Adjuster License Late Renewal and Reinstatement

If you’ve let your license expire, depending on the length of time past the expiration date, there are options to submit a late renewal

Up to 2 year after the expiration date, you can file a relicense application. This is essentially a new application, but you don’t need to retake the New York Adjuster Exam.

If your license is more than 2 year past the expiration date, you’ll need to apply for a new license. You can find those instructions on our New York Adjuster License guide.
