Important Mississippi Insurance License Update

The Governor has proclaimed a State of Emergency exists in the Counties of Forrest, Lamar, Perry, Marion, Jones and other parts of the state that have been affected by severe thunderstorms and tornados beginning January 21, 2017. Adjusters may apply for the Emergency Adjuster license at www.sircon.com, www.nipr.com or by US postal mail. An endorsement is required for this license type. If the individual already holds a MS independent adjuster license, an emergency adjuster license is not required. For questions or concerns, please contact Licensing at licensing@mid.ms.gov or 601-359-3582.

Effective November 10, 2017, the department will be providing a 90 day notification for license renewal for insurance producers, adjusters, entities and bail agents. Please ensure that the department has your current business e-mail as renewal invoices and licenses will be sent to the business email address on record. There is an option to print your license by registering with ProducerEdge or AgencyEdge on Sircon’s/Vertafore Website. ProducerEdge/AgencyEdge users may print the license free for 30 days. Bail Soliciting & Enforcement Agents licenses are mailed and Professional Bail Agents are emailed. For questions, email licensing@mid.ms.gov or call 601-359-3582.

You may verify/update your contact information, including mailing address and current business e-mail address on the sircon site. There is not fee to update your email or address if you are an individual. There is not a fee to update an agency/business entity email, but there is a fee to update an entity address on Sircon. You can also download and complete an Address Change Form, then scan and email to licensing@mid.ms.gov.
