Annuity Training Guide

A producer must complete the following Sagicor and/or state required annuity training before they solicit an annuity application:

  • General annuity suitability training. The training requirement is a key component of the National Association of insurance Commissioners (NAIC) Suitability in Annuity Transaction Model Regulation:
  • Annuity indexed product training. Iowa producers who wish to sell an indexed life or indexed annuity product need to complete 4-hours of CE on indexed products (click on the “Annuity Indexed Training” link below for more information);
  • Company specific training for each annuity product that producer is going to sell.

Annuity Suitability Training:

In order to fulfill this training requirement, you must complete either (a) or (b) below:
    • An Annuity Suitability training course that has been approved in a state that has previously adopted an Annuity Suitability Regulation. For example: Colorado adopted an Annuity Suitability Regulation with an effective date of 04/01/2011. If a producer completed a training course that was approved to fulfill this requirement in Colorado, that same training course can be used to fulfill the general “suitability” training course. If you have taken an annuity suitability training course as described above, we require that you furnish Producer Appointment with a certificate of completion or a training record issued by the CE provider. Producer Appointment will independently verify that the course submitted complies with the training requirements.
      Or
  • Sagicor’s “Annuity Suitability Training Course – CE and Company Credit (Free)”. Course completion requires successfully passing the final exam associated with the course. Please note, you will need pay an extra fee to receive state CE credits.

*This course will not fulfill the annuity suitability training requirement in California.

*Virginia resident producers are required to complete an Annuity Suitability Training course that provides 4-hours of VA CE. VA resident producers must provide proof of completion of the 4-hour CE requirement.

*Iowa requires producers who wish to sell indexed products to complete 4 hours of CE on indexed products. This course is approved for 4 hours of CE credit in the state of Iowa. To receive the CE credit, you must pay the applicable fee.
