17:22A-37. Temporary license
12. a. The commissioner may issue a temporary insurance producer license for a period not to exceed 180 days without requiring an examination if the commissioner determines 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, upon the death or disability of that producer, to allow adequate time for the sale of the insurance business owned by the producer or for the recovery or return of the producer to the business or to provide for the training and licensing of new personnel to operate the producer's business;
(2)To a member or employee of a business entity licensed as an insurance producer, upon the death or disability of an individual designated in the business entity application or the license as responsible for the business entity's compliance with the insurance laws, rules and regulations of this State;
(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 in which the commissioner determines that the public interest will best be served by the issuance of a temporary insurance producer license.
b.The commissioner may, by order, limit the authority of any temporary licensee in any way necessary to protect insureds and the public. The commissioner may require the temporary licensee to have a suitable sponsor who is a licensed insurance producer or insurer and who assumes responsibility for all acts of the temporary licensee and may impose other similar requirements designed to protect insureds and the public. The commissioner may by order revoke a temporary license if the interest of insureds or the public are endangered. A temporary license shall not continue after the owner or the personal representative disposes of the insurance producer's business.
