FOREIGN NATIONALS

IUL May Be a Smart Solution for Foreign Nationals
Index Universal Life (IUL) insurance can be an attractive option to meet client needs because some IUL policies offer index interest crediting based on a diverse mix of market indexes, including global indexes. The versatility of the policies can make them a smart solution for Foreign Nationals. Check out Transamerica Sales Leader Laura Morrison’s LifeHealthPro article on why this type of policy is a strategy both U.S. and Foreign National clients might want to explore.


COMPLIANCE

UT: Updated Written Disclosures for Non-Commission Compensation
Utah has updated its written disclosure requirements for non-commission compensation connected to obtaining, placing or servicing an insurance policy. Examples of non-commission compensation would be gifts, sales conference trips, stock options, etc. The updated requirements include:
* The signature of the insured or prospective insured acknowledging the non-commission compensation;
* The amount of any known non-commission compensation;
* The type and amount, if known, of any potential and contingent non-commission compensation; and
* The existence and source of any other compensation.

This information must be provided to the insured or prospective insured prior to the performance of the service.

CA Agents: Minimum Type Size for ‘Insurance’ in Marketing Collateral
California law now requires that the word “insurance” appear in type face no smaller than a 12-point font on business cards, price quotes and advertisements. If the smallest telephone number on these items is larger than a 12-point font, then it must be equal to that. All agents doing business exclusively in California must comply with this regulation.
