Urgent Information Regarding CO Insurance Licenses
As a response to COVID-19, the DOI issued Emergency Regulation 20-E-04 that would allow a continuation on all insurance licenses wherein all CO resident licenses would not be suspended for failure to complete the CE requirements or failure to pay the renewal fee. The DOI has set an expiration date for this emergency regulation of December 31, 2020. All insurance producers, insurance agencies, cash-bonding agents and professional cash-bail agents who were granted, benefited from or affected by the temporary continuation of license renewal deadlines must come into compliance by December 31, 2020. Failure to comply will result in license suspension.
Additionally, the regulation issued that removed the proctor requirement for exams associated with CE courses will expire on December 31, 2020. Any course that requires a final exam for CE will require a non-interested third-party proctor.
