§ 27-2.4-13. Temporary licenses.
(a) The insurance commissioner may issue a temporary insurance producer license for a period not to exceed one hundred eighty (180) days without requiring an examination if the insurance commissioner deems that the temporary license is necessary for the servicing of an insurance business in the following cases:
(1) To the surviving spouse or court-appointed personal representative of a licensed insurance producer who dies or becomes mentally or physically disabled to allow adequate time for the sale of the insurance business owned by the insurance producer or for the recovery or return of the insurance producer to the business or to provide for the training and licensing of new personnel to operate the insurance producer's business; or
(2) To a member or employee of a business entity operated by a licensed insurance producer, upon the death or disability of that individual; or
(3) To the designee of a licensed insurance producer entering active service in the armed forces of the United States of America; or
(4) In any other circumstance where the insurance commissioner deems that the public interest will best be served by the issuance of this license.
(b) The insurance commissioner may by order limit the authority of any temporary insurance producer in any way deemed necessary to protect the insured and the public. The insurance commissioner may require the temporary insurance producer to have a suitable sponsor who is a licensed insurance producer or insurer and who assumes responsibility for all acts of the temporary insurance producer and may impose other similar requirements designed to protect the insured and the public. The insurance commissioner may by order revoke a temporary license if the interest of the insured or the public are endangered. A temporary license may not continue after the owner or the personal representative disposes of the business.
