Maine Insurance Continuing Education Update
Effective November 1, 2015, Before a producer can engage in the sale of annuity products, they must complete a one-time 4 hour training course approved by the Bureau of Insurance for Annuity Suitability Training. Producers who hold a life insurance line of authority on the effective date of the 2015 amendments to this rule and who desire to sell annuities must complete the requirements of 02-031 Chapter 917 Section 7 within 6 months of the effective date of the amendments. Individuals who obtain a life insurance line of authority and wish to sell annuities must complete the requirements prior to selling annuities.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this change in continuing education requirements, ABCE recommends that you contact the Maine Department of Insurance at: (207)-624-8411. You may also contact a customer service representative at: 888-422-7714.
Wyoming Department of Insurance Rule, Chapter 64, titled “Regulation Governing Suitability in Annuity Transactions,” provides an effective date six months after being filed, making the rule effective on September 26, 2014. However, the rule also allows an additional six months for producers to complete the regulation’s training requirements. The deadline for compliance with the training requirement is March 26, 2015. Resident and nonresident producers who have completed the course for another state before the effective date of this requirement (9/26/14) will be considered compliant. The Wyoming Department of Insurance will accept completions from as far back as April, 2010, the date of the NAIC Model Regulation. Individuals who obtain a life insurance license on or after the effective date of this regulation may not engage in the sale of annuities until the training course required has been completed. Insurers must have a system in place to track producer’s compliance with training requirements and a control framework to ensure that no annuity sales occur prior to the completion of training. A copy of the rule can be found at http://soswy.state.wy.us/Rules/RULES/9459.pdf. If you have any questions, please contact the Wyoming Department of Insurance Licensing Division at (307) 777-7319, or visit us online at http://doi.wyo.gov.
