40-5509. Issuance of license; fee; renewal. (a) An individual who has met the requirements for licensure under this act shall be issued a public adjuster license. A public adjuster license shall remain in effect, unless revoked, terminated or suspended, as long as the request for renewal is timely submitted and a license renewal fee of $100 is paid and any other requirements for license renewal are met by the due date. The licensee shall inform the commissioner by any means acceptable to the commissioner of a change of address, change of legal name or change of information submitted on the application within 30 days of the change.
(b) A public adjuster shall be subject to the provisions of subsection (9) of K.S.A. 40-2404, and amendments thereto.
(c) A public adjuster who allows such person's license to lapse may, within 12 months from the due date of the renewal, be issued a new public adjuster license upon the commissioner's receipt of proof that the licensee has satisfactorily completed the renewal process and the licensee's payment of a reinstatement fee of $100. The new public adjuster license shall be effective the date the commissioner receives such proof and the reinstatement fee.
(d) A licensed public adjuster that is unable to comply with license renewal procedures due to military service, a long-term medical disability or some other extenuating circumstance, may request an extension of time to comply with those procedures.
(e) The public adjuster license shall contain the licensee's name, city and state of business address, personal identification number, the date of issuance, the expiration date and any other information the commissioner deems necessary.
(f) In order to assist in the performance of the commissioner's duties, the commissioner may contract with non-governmental entities, including the NAIC, to perform any ministerial functions, including the collection of fees and data related to licensing that the commissioner may deem appropriate.
