How To Get An Insurance License in Nebraska
The first step to launching your business as an independent producer is obtaining your insurance license.
If you live in Nebraska, you will need to apply for a Resident Producer's License with the Nebraska Department of Insurance (NDI).
To sell Medicare plans with ABC Medicare Plans, you will need to obtain an Accident & Health license. The Life Insurance license is not required, but many agents complete their requirements since most of the pre-licensing study courses cover that material.
You also may need a Life License to enroll your clients in additional coverage beyond Medicare plans.
The first step to getting licensed is to sign up for a study course that will help you prepare for the exam.
We recommend using WebCE, an online study course.

Please allow 2-3 days for the exam results to be transmitted to the Nebraska Department of Insurance before applying on-line at www.nipr.com or you can download the application at www.doi.nebraska.gov/producers/license.

the Nebraska Department of Insurance Licensing Division at (402) 471-4913 or at

7) Nebraska DOI will review your application
Passing an exam does not guarantee that you will be issued a license. You must submit all application materials and fees to the Department within one year of passing your exam. Issuance of a license depends on review and approval of all license application materials.
Submitting an application does not mean that a license was approved or issued. You may view the status of your license using the License Lookup Tool.
Please allow 5 business days for TDI to review your application.
8) Print your new license
After the license has been issued, you may view and print your license online using the Licensee Lookup tool.
