(215 ILCS 5/500-60)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2027)
    Sec. 500-60. Temporary licensing.
    (a) The Director may issue a temporary insurance producer license for a period not to exceed 180 days and, at the discretion of the Director, may renew the temporary producer license for an additional 180 days without requiring an examination if the Director deems that the temporary license is necessary for the servicing of an insurance business in the following cases:
        (1) to the surviving spouse or court-appointed
personal representative of a licensed insurance producer who dies or becomes a person with a mental or physical disability to allow adequate time for the sale of the insurance business owned by the producer or for the recovery or return of the producer to the business or to provide for the training and licensing of new personnel to operate the producer's business;
        (2) to a member or employee of a business entity
licensed as an insurance producer, upon the death or disability of an individual designated in the business entity application or the license; or
        (3) to the designee of a licensed insurance producer
entering active service in the armed forces of the United States of America.
    (b) The Director may by order limit the authority of any temporary licensee in any way deemed necessary to protect insureds and the public. The Director may require the temporary licensee to have a suitable sponsor who is a licensed producer or insurer and who assumes responsibility for all acts of the temporary licensee and may impose other similar requirements designed to protect insureds and the public. The Director may by order revoke a temporary license if the interest of insureds or the public are endangered. A temporary license may not continue after the owner or the personal representative disposes of the business.
    (c) Before any temporary insurance producer license is issued, there must be filed with the Director a written application by the person desiring the license in the form, with the supplements, and containing the information that the Director requires. License fees, as provided for in Section 500-135, must be paid upon the issuance of the original temporary insurance producer license, but not for any renewal thereof.
