AGENTS & BROKERS:  LIFE AGENT

On January 1, 2008, California's life agent licensing laws were changed to abolish the life agent license and establish two new insurance agent license types, a Life-Only Agent license and an Accident and Health Agent license. These license types are available to both individuals and business entities.

When an initial application is made to the California Department of Insurance, applicants may apply for a "full Life Agent" license by selecting both the Life-Only Agent and the Accident and Health Agent license types on their application. Applicants checking both the Life-Only Agent and the Accident and Health Agent license types on the application will pay one filing fee. Individual applicants checking both the Life-Only Agent and the Accident and Health Agent license types on their application will take one examination for both license types.
