- If you have administrative actions against you in any state—even if they are not recent—be sure to disclose them on the license application. Also disclose any child support or tax delinquencies, or any criminal charges or convictions. If you are unsure whether something needs to be reported, we encourage you to err on the side of reporting. You will avoid a license denial based on your failure to report.
- Applicant's name, birth date, license number, state of residence, SSN, and National Producer Number (NPN) must match current Producer Database (PDB) record for resident state in order to apply for a Wisconsin reciprocal license.
Applicants Please Read: Once your application has been submitted to the State of Wisconsin, you will have 90 days to submit any required information/requirements. Failure to supply the required documentation will cause your application to be CLOSED as EXPIRED. Fees are non-refundable.
If you applied for a license type in error, you will need to submit a written request to our office requesting the withdrawal of the application. The application process and the withdrawal of the application represent an administrative expense for the agency and, therefore, the fees are non-refundable.
