Massachusetts and Alabama: Annuity Training Required
Beginning October 1, 2016 (Massachusetts) and January 1, 2017 (Alabama), an insurance producer may not solicit the sale of an individual annuity product in either state until he/she has completed insurer-provided product-specific training. An insurance producer must also complete a one-time four (4) hour annuity training course provided by a continuing education provider approved by the state.
The OneAmerica insurance companies will verify that a producer has completed the appropriate OneAmerica insurance company product-specific training and a state approved annuity training course as part of processing an application.
Annuity applications will be returned for re-solicitation after the training requirements, both the product-specific training and the annuity certification course (within the required time frame), have been met.
