SD Implements Temporary Producer Licenses
The South Dakota Division of Insurance is implementing a process to issue temporary insurance producer licenses during the COVID-19 pandemic. Applications for temporary licenses will be available beginning April 20 and will be accepted until the COVID-19 emergency concludes. Insurance producer applicants cannot obtain proper licensure to operate in the state because insurance producer examination vendors have been unable to administer examinations during the COVID-19 health crisis.
“Circumstances exist where the public interest is best served by granting temporary insurance producer licenses as established by state law," said Insurance Director Larry Deiter. “The division has issued Bulletin 20-03 outlining the qualifications and conditions for temporary licensure.”
