Birth Month Renewal Conversion Information

After study and consideration that included input from several producer and adjuster professional associations and individual producers, the Louisiana Department of Insurance determined that conversion to birth month renewals would be in the best interest of licensed producers and adjusters. The conversion to birth month renewals began with insurance producers licensed for the lines of life and health and accident type licenses in April 2009 and will end with the conversion of producers with property and casualty type licenses and adjusters by the end of April 2011.

Conversion to birth month renewals means that the expiration of an individual insurance producer or adjuster license will be based upon the date of birth of the producer or adjuster rather than having all of the licenses expire on a single day every two years. Producer and adjuster licenses may be renewed up to sixty days prior to the expiration of the license.

An insurance producer license for an individual for one or more of the lines of life, health and accident, variable life and variable annuity, limited lines life, accident and health, credit or travel will expire on the last date of the birth month of the producer in the even-numbered year following issuance and on that same day every even-numbered year thereafter.

All adjuster licenses and an insurance producer license for an individual for one or more of the lines of property, casualty, personal lines, title, industrial fire, surety, bail bonds or surplus lines will expire on the last date of the birth month of the producer in the odd-numbered year following issuance and on that same day every odd-numbered year thereafter.

Birth month renewal conversion does not affect the renewal of producer or adjuster licenses issued to business entities. Those licenses will continue to expire on April 30 of even-numbered years for the lines of life, health and accident, variable life and variable annuity, limited lines life, accident and health, credit or travel and April 30 of odd-numbered years for the lines for all adjuster licenses and producer licenses for the lines of property, casualty, personal lines, title, industrial fire, surety, bail bonds or surplus lines.
