Press release from: Quest CE

MILWAUKEE – July 13, 2011 – Quest CE, premier provider of insurance continuing education and FINRA firm element training, is proud to announce their Annuity Training courses for Kentucky, Maryland and West Virginia have been approved and meet each states’ specific annuity training requirements. Producers can immediately begin taking the course to remain compliant.

All three states have adopted the NAIC Suitability in Annuity Transaction Model Regulation recommendation. This Model Regulation was adopted to set standards and procedures for suitable annuity recommendations and to require insurers to establish a system to supervise recommendations, so that the insurance needs and financial objectives of consumers are appropriately addressed.

The effective rule date for each state is as follows:

• Kentucky – January 1, 2012
• Maryland – November 1, 2011
• West Virginia – July 1, 2011

Producers licensed to sell, solicit or negotiate annuities, prior to the effective date, must complete the one-time, four (4) hour Annuity Training course within six (6) months of the effective date. Newly licensed producers on or after the effective rule date must complete the training before selling any type of annuity.

Recommendations regarding the purchase or exchange of an annuity must be suitable and beneficial to the consumer, based on the consumer’s suitability information. Suitability is determined by gathering information related to risk tolerance, financial liquidity and other factors that determine whether or not the annuity being recommended is suitable for the consumer.

Quest CE’s Annuities Training Course will cover the following topics:

• A complete basic understanding of annuities
• Examples, references and citations that illuminate complex points of annuities
• Comprehensive text with cohesive narrative explanation
• The importance of annuities and how it benefits the consumer
• Obstacles and relevant solutions associated with annuities as they relate to seniors

Kentucky, Maryland and West Virginia require 24 hours of continuing education credit and three (3) ethics credits, every two (2) years. Quest CE offers a full suite of courses for producers to complete all their continuing education requirements. Additionally, Quest CE is proud to offer specific annuity courses for Colorado, District of Columbia, Indiana, Iowa, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina and Wisconsin, whom have also adopted the NAIC recommendation.
