  • The 2018 Renewal report and Authorized Agent upload process into NMLS will satisfy the Fourth Quarter Report requirement for Licencees.  The next required quarterly report will be in NMLS.
  • The current authorized agent lookup system on the IDFPR website is offline until the transition is complete, scheduled to return January 2018
