The Renewal Period for 2014 is closed. The Reinstatement Period will be open from January 1 through February 28.
Not all states allow for reinstatement, and others may have an earlier reinstatement deadline.
Select the respective state(s) from Step 3 below to determine reinstatement details and requirements.
Step 1 – Prepare for the renewal process
NMLS has prepared a Renewal Handbook for state-licensed companies
and individuals to guide them through the renewal process. The
handbook(s) will provide information on how to prepare to request
renewal of licenses in NMLS. All records must be up-to-date and in
an approved status before requesting renewal. Use the Quick Guide:
Preparing for Renewal to review the information on record and
to confirm the license/registration statuses.
Review the uniform renewal checklists for any state
During the 2014 Streamlined Renewal period, the system will
rely on criminal background check settings provided by regulators.
If a state requires a new CBC during renewal and a CBC has been
authorized within the last 90 days, regulators have the option
whether to accept the 90 day look-back or require a new CBC
authorization. Missouri will allow a 30 day look-back, and New York
will require a CBC authorized during the renewal period of November
1 – December 31, 2013.
Step 2 – Log in to NMLS and make sure your record is up to date
Confirm you are able to access your NMLS account by logging in
with your user name and password. If you need assistance with your
log in credentials, utilize the “Forgot your User Name/Password”
hyperlinks on the NMLS log in screen. A
brief video is available to assist you with this process.
Step 3 – Review deadlines and requirements
Review all applicable state(s) renewal requirements. Select a
state(s) using the drop-down box below to determine renewal
deadlines, requirements, fees, etc.
Step 4 – Request Renewal
Beginning November 1st, licensees can log in to NMLS, click the
Renewal Tab, and request renewal of their licenses. Alternatively,
licensees also have the ability to identify licenses they do not
wish to renew.
In certain instances, sponsoring companies may wish to submit a
renewal requests on behalf of an individual licensee. Individuals
should consult with their sponsoring company to determine who is
responsible for the submission of their renewal request.
