A required lawful presence in the U.S. is no longer applicable to insurance producer applications and renewals. The Division of Insurance is currently working to remove this language from their systems. In the meantime, if you are a potential applicant for an insurance producer license / renewal, and this situation applies to you, please use the alternate application and submit it to DORA_Ins_LicensingAndContinuingEducation@state.co.us. Submit any further questions about this process to that same email address.

Please note that Colorado licenses ONLY public adjusters. Public adjusters are those who work solely for the public on a contract basis. Colorado DOES NOT license company or staff adjusters. IF YOU ARE AN ADJUSTER OTHER THAN A PUBLIC ADJUSTER, PLEASE DO NOT APPLY FOR AN ADJUSTER LICENSE IN COLORADO.
Pursuant to §10-2-417(2), C.R.S. and Colorado Insurance Regulation 1-2-19, you must provide a $20,000 signed Surety Bond from an insurance company and a Power of Attorney in the format defined in the regulation above. Your signed Surety Bond and Power of Attorney should be attached electronically in Sircon after submission of your application. Mailing or failing to attach the Surety Bond and the Power of Attorney may delay the processing of your application.

All Colorado insurance producer laws apply to public adjusters.
A business entity acting as a public adjuster, as described at §10-2-103(8.5), C.R.S., is required to obtain a public adjuster license and shall comply with §10-2-417(2), C.R,S., by securing a surety bond in the format prescribed in Colorado Insurance Regulation 1-2-19.
All Colorado licensed insurance producers, including public adjusters, need to be associated to the public adjusting agency if they are an employee pursuant to §10-2-406, C.R. S.
Your licensing effective and expiration dates may not coincide with your surety bond effective and expiration dates.
Your surety bond and power of attorney need to be attached to your application after you have applied for your Colorado public adjuster license.
If you have active public adjuster license but you do not have an active surety bond, then you will be referred to the Attorney General's office for action to be taken against your license.
