Frequently asked questions

Who needs a 4-40 License?

This license is required to work for most insurance agents and agencies in Florida. It’s designed for salaried employees of insurance agencies, not agents or brokers who earn the majority of their pay from sales commissions. The 4-40 license allows you to make quotes, explain policies to clients, and provide valuable assistance to sales agents.

What is the typical role for a Customer Representative?

As a CR, you’ll handle many of the day-to-day tasks for the agent or agency. You might discuss policies and coverages with customers, answer their questions, handle personal information of clients and potential clients, or make policy changes. Customer Reps can also sell insurance, as long as they are under the supervision of a licensed general agent. Other responsibilities include developing good relationships with policyholders, up selling coverage, and encouraging customers to refer friends and family. 

Customer Rep’s are often seen as the ‘face’ of the agency since they communicate with policyholders and would-be policyholders on a regular basis. They can have a huge impact on customer satisfaction and retention, (the main goal of any insurer,) so they are incredibly important. Customer Reps can make commissions, however, commissions cannot total more than half of their annual pay.

What is the application process for the 4-40 License?

To apply for your Florida 4-40 license, you must complete a state-approved prerequisite course, usually referred to as a “designation.” Our designation course is labeled CIR which stands for Customer Insurance Representative. 

 

Once you complete our CIR course, you’re ready to apply for your 4-40 License.

  • Submit your application for licensing through MyProfile

– There are special requirements for applicants with a prior criminal history. Click here for more info provided by the state.

For complete licensing details, including nonresident information, see FLDFS Licensing Information.

How much will the 4-40 License cost overall?

Once you’ve completed our Florida CIR Course and passed the included exam, you’ll need to pay the following state application fees. 

  • Licensing and Application Fee: $50
  • License ID Fee: $5
  • Fingerprint Processing Fee: $48.55

Is there opportunity for career growth?

The simple answer: YES! 

 

Today, insurance is a part of every aspect of our lives. The industry is one of the largest in the world and employs millions of people in hundreds of different jobs and roles. No matter what your interest, there is likely a position in the insurance industry to suit your talents. 

On a smaller scale, the 4-40 License is a great way to break into this booming industry. Working as a customer representative will help you learn about the industry and insurance policies and give you real-world experience should you decide to become a full-fledged agent. Once you have taken our CIR Designation course and worked for 1 year as a licensed 4-40 rep, you only need to take a 40-hour course and pass an exam to become a 2-20 licensed general agent. In comparison, those who do not have their 4-40 license must take a 200-hour course and pass the state exam or get a college degree in insurance before qualifying.

Licensing renewal and continuing education

You must renew your 4-40 License every two years. While there is no renewal fee, license-holders do need to complete 10 hours of continuing education every renewal period and submit proof to the state in order to stay compliant.  

The 10-hours of CE must consist of the 5-hour Florida Law and Ethics Update and an additional 5 hours of elective credits. 

We do not currently offer continuing education courses for the Florida 4-40 license. 

To see complete details on the 4-40 license or to search for approved CE courses, visit the Florida Department of Insurance 4-40 Website Page. You can also contact the department at  (850) 413-3137 or agentlicensing@myfloridacfo.com.
