Q. I’m going to retire before my license renews. Do I still need to take continuing education courses?
A. Yes. The obligation to meet the requirements of licensure, including continuing education, applies as soon as you are issued the license. That obligation exists regardless of how long you use your license, or if you use it at all. That said, when a licensee chooses to surrender their license with a substantial portion of the term remaining, TDI currently reduces the required continuing education hours for that term accordingly.
Need the answer to a tough technical or regulatory question?
IIAT is continuing the Ask Regina brand as a small way to honor the late Regina Anderson’s legacy as IIAT’s go-to guru for answering all insurance technical and regulatory questions.
So, if you don’t have the answer to a tough technical or regulatory question – go ahead and Ask Regina. It might not be exactly the same when an IIAT insurance expert like Jim Gavin calls you back, but you’ll probably get the answer you need, and maybe a joke to lighten your day.
