Q. How do I add or delete a line of authority to an existing Producer license?
A. Resident producers adding Life, Accident and Health or Sickness, Variable Life and Variable Annuity, Personal
Lines, Property and/or Casualty line to an active Producer license must first successfully pass the appropriate
exam. Allow 2-3 business days to process the exam results then view the license on NIPR to verify if the line of
authority has been updated. Do not apply for a new producer license.
Nonresident producers may add a line of authority to an existing active license online on NIPR. Nonresidents
adding a line must hold the line in their resident state.
The Service Request Form found on our website may be used to modify lines of authority or cancel a license. A
resident licensee who requested that a line of authority be cancelled but later wants to add that line of authority
will need to re-qualify to have the line(s) added at a later date by successfully passing the appropriate exam.
Maryland does not charge for adding a line of authority to an existing active license. Adding a line of authority
does not alter or extend the expiration date of the license.
Q. How can I change my address?
A. A licensee must notify the Administration within 30 days of the change. This includes the change of an email
address as MIA sends notifications electronically. Failure to timely inform the Commissioner of a change of
address is a violation of the Insurance Article and subjects the licensee to disciplinary action, including, but not
limited to, license revocation, a monetary penalty, or both.
Individual and business entity licensees may change their addresses, including email addresses, using the Contact
Change Request (CCR) feature at www.nipr.com.
NOTE: Address changes resulting in residency status changes are not permitted online.
Change of address notification may also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org;
faxed to (410) 468-2399; or mailed to:

Individual licensees must submit a copy of a marriage certificate, divorce decree, or court order. Business
Entities must attach confirmation that the name change has been registered with the State of Maryland
Department of Assessment and Taxation. Nonresidents must have already reported the change of name to
their resident state.
