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.
  • Michigan will rely on verification of the applicant’s Resident license through the State Producer Licensing Database in lieu of an original Letter of Certification.

  • All licensees, with the exception of business entities, use the Address Change Request (ACR) gateway on the NIPR website at www.nipr.com. The NAIC PDB must reflect an active resident license for the individual in order to use the ACR.
