Hello, I was convicted of auto theft in 2008 and now I want to become an insurance agent and start selling insurance. I wonder if laws permit me to sell insurance or not. Thanks
The answer for this question is quite broad. First of all I need to know your state because the rules and regulations about insurance license differ between every state. In that sense I will give you a perfect idea that will lead you to the answer. You should just google the following equation on Google;
‘Your state’+’department of insurance’+’requirements’
By making the above search on Google, you will go to your states websites to get the best advice for you.
YES, Convicted Fellons CAN Sell Insurance
Apart from making a research for your state’s department of insurance, I can give you an answer that will give you a general idea. If you had been a convicted fellon in the past, you will have to apply for a waiver. This process might look a little bold and complicated to you but after dealing with some paperwork, you will be able to take the exams for an insurance license and start selling insurance as soon as you receive your license.
