The majority of insurance licensing activity is done online through our vendor, Sircon. This online service allows you to: apply for a license, renew an existing license, check on continuing education, or perform other tasks such as updating an address or name change.
Some license activity is still done on paper. Links to the forms you will need are in the right hand column of the page related to the licenses that use paper forms.
Effective May 1, 2013, the technology surcharge is reduced to $25 [Minn. Stat. §45.24 (f)].
Minnesota law now requires any board or agency to assess a surcharge on all new licenses or registrations issued or renewed until June 30, 2015. Only those applicants already paying a current and separate Technology Surcharge are exempt from the new surcharge. The surcharge is 10 percent of the fee -- no less than $5 and no more than $150 -- on each business, commercial, professional, and occupational license or registration. This surcharge is being collected on behalf of the Minnesota Office of Enterprise Technology (OET) to fund a statewide electronic licensing system (M.S. 16E.22). It is identified on the Sircon and PULSE systems as the "OET surcharge." Please call 651-556-8005 for further information.
Changes impact real estate brokers and salespersons, appraisers, insurance producers and adjusters, prelicensing and continuing education providers. Take a few moments to review the information relevant to your particular license type or industry here. Also included are Frequently Asked Questions.
