Check your mailbox this week for a white postcard this week from the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) that will remind you about key steps in your license renewal.

You will need to submit information electronically or by snail mail, and the postcard includes a unique PIN number for your online account.

Renewal costs – Managing Brokers must pay the IDFPR renewal license fee of $200 after completing CE but before the April 30 deadline. IDFPR charges $250 to those who miss the deadline. Payments can be made online but those who renew by mail should make their checks out to IDFPR. IAR does not control the amount of your fee.

Need to check your CE? – Check IAR’s Official Q&A and checklist for the 2015 Managing Broker License Renewal with Q&A from IAR legal counsel and education manager. Or, email [email protected] or call 1-800-523-5077 and IAR will look it up.

Continuing education – The Illinois Association of REALTORS®’ two-day webinars are scheduled for three sessions prior to the deadline: March 4 and 5; April 9 and 10; and April 20 and 21. Sign up today. Also, IAR offers Ethics (ETH 1515) through online CE and home study CE.
