(2) A public adjuster license shall remain in effect unless revoked, terminated or suspended as long as the request for renewal and the fee set forth in the rule promulgated under section 41-5806(1)(g), Idaho Code, is paid and any other requirements for license renewal are met by the due date.
(3) The licensee shall inform the department by any means acceptable to the department of a change of address, change of legal name, or change of information submitted on the application within thirty (30) days of the change.
