Guiding Principles for Michigan Insurance Producer Licensure

To request a Non-Resident Producer license in Michigan, follow these steps:

An application is valid for six months from entry into our database. For questions relating to electronic application submission, contact NIPR Customer Service at 855-674-6477.
