How Do I Renew My MSB License?

The annual renewal period is between November 1 and December 1.  Late Renewals are permitted between December 2 and December 31, although a late fine may be assessed via an agency fee invoice in NMLS for any renewal requests made on or after December 2.  Failure to submit a complete renewal application by December 31 will result in license expiration.  The Department does not participate in Reinstatement. Expired licensees must submit a new license request to be re-licensed in Georgia.


All MSB license renewal filings must be made through the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System & Registry (NMLS).  Click HERE to access NMLS.
