Many licensees wish to place their license in escrow at the end of the year. 

The principal broker can only release the license. The licensee is responsible for logging into the Online Licensing Services portal of the website and paying the $10 fee to place the license in escrow. This can only be done after the principal broker has released the license through the online portal. The license

can be placed in escrow by the licensee on or before December 31st, if the licensee is not going to be able to complete the mandated CE requirement for the current calendar year.
