How To Get An Insurance License in Kansas
The first step to launching your business as an independent producer is obtaining your insurance license.
If you live in Kansas, you will need to apply for a Resident Producer's License with the Kansas Insurance Department (KID).
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.
