Applications for renewal were mailed Monday, August 1, 2016 to preneed seller and preneed provider licensees.

Preneed sellers should not submit their annual reports until after the August 31, 2016 reporting period ends.

It is recommended that preneed seller and preneed provider licensees submit renewal applications by October 1, 2016 to allow processing time.

Any licensee whose license has not been renewed by the expiration is not authorized to practice after that date until the license has been renewed by the board. Submission of the renewal form and fee does not constitute renewal or grant the ability to practice after the expiration date.
