A: Maine is not currently set up to print licenses electronically. The current process is for us to mail a hard copy of the license to the mailing address within two weeks of license approval. Renewal licenses will only be sent upon request at renewal time.
A: Renewals can be processed in paper only:
- Please wait to receive your renewal invoice in the mail and follow the instructions on the invoice. Invoices are mailed 6-8 weeks prior to the renewal due date.
- Licenses cannot be renewed more than 60 days prior to the renewal date.
- The renewal fee for both resident and non-resident Structured Settlement Transferees is $100.
A: Address/contact information can be changed 1 of 2 ways:
- Electronically via ALMS Online with an access code. This will change your information for Maine only.
- Via paper form which can be faxed, e-mailed or mailed to the Bureau of Insurance. This will change your information for Maine only.
