Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (a) An individual applying for a resident insurance producer license must make application on a form specified by the Director and declare under penalty of refusal, suspension, or revocation of the license that the statements made in the application are true, correct, and complete to the best of the individual's knowledge and belief. Before approving the application, the Director must find that the individual:
        (1) is at least 18 years of age;

        (3) has completed, if required by the Director, a
pre-licensing course of study before the insurance exam for the lines of authority for which the individual has applied (an individual who successfully completes the Fire and Casualty pre-licensing courses also meets the requirements for Personal Lines-Property and Casualty);

lines of authority for which the person has applied.
