The NMLS Annual Renewal Period begins November 1 and ends December 31 each year. According to federal regulations, mortgage loan originator registrants must renew their registrations annually. Once submitted for renewal by the employer, individual MLOs must log in and attest to their registration renewal prior to December 31 in order for their registration status to remain active. Those who do not renew will have an “Inactive” registration status both in NMLS and on NMLS Consumer Access. Inactive registrations must be reactivated in order to have an “Active” registration status. Consult your employer if you have any questions regarding the renewal or reactivation of your registration.
