Once you have passed your state insurance exam you can apply for your insurance license through the Vertafore website using the kiosk at the PSI testing center. During your application you will also register and pay to have your fingerprints electronically scanned to complete a background check by the Department of Insurance, as detailed in the next step below.
Application Fee: $55.00
You must schedule an appointment to submit electronic fingerprints to complete a background check. Fingerprints are required by the Pennsylvania Insurance Department to ensure that applicants do not have a disqualifying criminal or social services background that would prevent them from being a licensed insurance agent.
When scheduling your appointment at the IdentoGO website, you must use the appropriate service code assigned to the Pennsylvania Insurance Department, which is 1KG8Q3. Using the correct service code ensures the background check is processed for the proper agency and submitted for the correct purpose. Upon scheduling your appointment, you will be provided a registration number, which you must bring on the day of your fingerprint appointment.
Electronic Fingerprints Fee: $23.85
Once your application has been approved by the Department of Insurance, you may print your Pennsylvania insurance license.
