PRENEED AGENT/FUNERAL DIRECTOR AGENT REGISTRATIONS NOW BEING RENEWED!

Applications for renewal were mailed Thursday, September 1, 2016 to preneed agents/preneed agent funeral directors. Preneed agents were mailed post cards and funeral director agents were mailed paper renewals.

Preneed agents that would like to renew online can go to https://renew.pr.mo.gov/renew-default.asp. A PIN number (printed on your renewal form ) will be required and there will be a convenience fee. If you have misplaced your PIN number, one can be requested in writing from the board office by via email to embalm@pr.mo.gov, via facsimile at (573) 751-1155, or by writing to the board's address.

An agent must have an active relationship with at least one active preneed seller in order to complete the application to renew. A registration that does not have a finalized renewal application by the November 30, 2016 date will lapse.

It is recommended to submit renewal applications by November 1, 2016 to allow processing time.

Any registrant whose registration has not been renewed by the expiration is not authorized to practice after that date until the registration 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.
