How to Renew Your South Carolina Adjuster License

SC 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.

South Carolina adjuster licenses expire at the end of your birth month in even- or odd-numbered years corresponding with your birth year.

You can find your expiration date using the State Based Systems license lookup tool.

Step 1: South Carolina Adjuster License Renewal Application

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

The South Carolina Department of Insurance and Financial Regulation will send you a renewal notice when the renewal window opens – 90 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 NIPR so you don’t miss any correspondence from the state.

Submit your renewal using NIPR.

The adjuster license renewal fee is: $80

Note

South Carolina 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 South Carolina 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 South Carolina 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.

South Carolina Non-Resident Adjuster License Renewal

Non-Resident Renewal

Continuing Education

CE | Follow your home state

Renewing your non-resident South Carolina 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 South Carolina non-resident adjuster license renewal.

Submit your renewal using NIPR.

The non-resident adjuster license renewal fee varies by your home state – using what’s called a retaliatory fee.

You can find your state’s retaliatory renewal fee using the NIPR South Carolina Retaliatory Fees document.

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).

South Carolina 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 180 days year after the expiration date, you can file a late renewal. The additional fee for late renewal is $80.

As with the standard renewal, you must complete your CE requirements before late renewal or reinstatement.

If you don’t complete your CE by the expiration date, an additional $50 fee will be applied to your renewal.

If your license is more than 1 year past the expiration date, you’ll need to apply for a new license. You can find those instructions on our South Carolina Adjuster License guide.
