FAQ:

When does your individual license expire?
If you were born in an even numbered year, your license will expire on your birthday in an even numbered year. If you were born in an odd numbered year, your license will expire on your birthday in an odd numbered year. The effective and expiration dates appear on all licenses.

When does your business entity license expire?
In 2018, the New York State Legislature and the governor enacted into law a bill that Big I New York wrote. The law, which took effect on July 1, 2019, changes the expiration dates for insurance agent and broker licenses issued to business entities. It establishes one date on which an agency or brokerage's licenses will expire – June 30 of odd-numbered years.  The new law means that all licenses issued to business entities on and after July 1, 2019 will expire on June 30 in odd-numbered years.
