Effective March 11, 2020 Governor Mike Dunleavy signed an emergency disaster declaration related to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. The Division of Insurance continues to monitor the developing situation as it relates to insurance licensing. We continue to strive for operational continuity while complying with government mandates and official recommendations.
As the situation continues to evolve, we are encouraging licensees to renew their licenses as early as possible in order to avoid any potential delays in processing. Alaska insurance licensees can renew their licenses as early as ninety days prior to the license expiration date. In most cases, you can renew online at NIPR.com. To check your license expiration date, please utilize the licensee lookup tool located at statebasedsystems.com.
For Alaska resident licensees, we are requesting that you complete your Continuing Education (CE) requirements well in advance of your license expiration date as Alaska approved CE providers have ten (10) days following completion of the course to report CE credits earned to the division. There are many internet-based and distance learning courses that are approved to be offered for CE in the State of Alaska. You can search for any Alaska approved CE course at statebasedsystems.com.
The division is sensitive to the continually changing and challenging dynamic of the COVID-19 spread, and its potential effect on all licensees. Following the above recommendations will assist with license applications being processed in a timely and efficient manner. If you have any questions, please contact the Alaska Division of Insurance at 907-465-2515 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
