Explanation between the Property & Casualty exams and the Personal & Commercial exams:
  • Property 03 + Casualty 04 = You would be able to sell P&C products to both individuals and businesses.
  • Personal Lines exam 55 would allow you to sell P&C products to individuals.
  • Commercial Lines exam 44 would allow you to sell P&C products to businesses. 
    The Personal Lines and Commercial would equal the Property and Casualty line of authority.
Iowa individual insurance producers' license numbers are the same as their NPN and are on a triennial birth month renewal cycle.
