I. Unless denied licensure pursuant to RSA 402-D:10, persons who have met the requirements of RSA 402-D:5 or RSA 402-D:8 shall be issued a public adjuster license.
II. A public adjuster license shall remain in effect unless revoked, terminated, or suspended as long as the request for renewal and fee set forth in RSA 400-A:29 is paid and any other requirements for license renewal are met by the due date.
III. The licensee shall inform the commissioner by any means acceptable to the commissioner of a change of address, change of legal name, or change of information submitted on the application within 30 days of the change.
IV. A licensed public adjuster shall be subject to RSA 417.
V. A public adjuster who allows his or her license to lapse may, within 12 months from the due date of the renewal, be issued a new public adjuster license upon the commissioner's receipt of the request for renewal. However, a penalty in the amount of double the unpaid renewal fee shall be required for the issue of the new public adjuster license. The new public adjuster license shall be effective the date the commissioner receives the request or renewal and the late payment penalty.
VI. A licensed public adjuster who is unable to comply with license renewal procedures due to military service, a long-term medical disability, or some other extenuating circumstance, may request a waiver of those procedures. The public adjuster may also request a waiver of any examination requirement, fine, or other sanction imposed for failure to comply with renewal procedures.
VII. The license shall contain the licensee's name, business street address, mailing address, personal identification number, the date of issuance, the expiration date, and any other information the commissioner deems necessary. Licensees shall inform the commissioner by any means acceptable to the commissioner of a change of address within 30 days of the change. Failure to timely inform the commissioner of a change in address shall result in an additional fee pursuant to RSA 400-A:29.
VIII. In order to assist in the performance of the commissioner's duties, the commissioner may contract with non-governmental entities, including the NAIC or any affiliates or subsidiaries that the NAIC oversees, to perform any ministerial functions, including the collection of fees and data, related to licensing that the commissioner may deem appropriate.
IX. Unless revoked by the commissioner, the license and any renewal thereof shall expire on October 1 of the second calendar year after its issue.
