Veterans can now be reimbursed for insurance exam fees

Veterans who passed any Texas insurance exam since early 2019 can now get reimbursed for the fee.

”We’re grateful to Veterans Affairs for approving our request,” said Insurance Commissioner Kent Sullivan. “This is a small way to honor those who have served our country, and we’re proud to offer it.”

Veterans may seek reimbursement of exam fees going back to February 1, 2019. To do so, apply to the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.

In addition, TDI also makes it easier for active duty military members and spouses to work as insurance agents or adjusters in Texas.

Licensed in another state? Skip the application fee in Texas.

TDI waives the application fees for military spouses who have an insurance license in another state. When they apply for their Texas license, they simply need to provide proof of Texas residency, their military identification, and their insurance credentials from their home state.

Continuing education deadlines extended during active duty.

Military members with an insurance license get a break on their career education while they’re deployed to a combat area. They simply need to provide a copy of their orders.

Starting your insurance career? Take your insurance exams on your military base.

TDI worked with its exam vendor to add insurance exam sites on military bases around the state.

More information about how to get an insurance agent or adjuster license can be found on the TDI website.
