Pre-Authorized Payment Plan

What is PPP?

The Pre-Authorized Plan (PPP) is a pre-payment option allowing LPNs to pay their licensure renewal fee in advance, directly from their bank account. Enrolling in the program avoids having a large lump sum payment near the end of the year. 

When does the PPP begin?

The next PPP has a new withdrawal schedule and will begin on February 1st, and ends on September 1, 2021.  Monthly withdrawals are set at $57.25. 

Remember: You are prepaying for next year’s licensure and payments made in 2021 are for your 2022 license.
