In addition, Assembly Bill 689 became effective January 2, 2012. The bill added Sections 10509.910 through 10509.918, Suitability Requirements for Annuity Transactions, to the CIC, part of which states that an insurance producer may not solicit the sale of an annuity product unless he or she has adequate knowledge of the product to recommend it and the producer is in compliance with the insurer’s standards for product training. Producers may rely on insurer provided product specific training standards and materials to comply with the product specific training requirement.

Please note that AB 689 does not change the annuity training requirements which are stated in Section 1749.8 of the CIC. The annuity product specific training is a separate requirement from the eight-hour and four-hour annuity training noted above.

This course has been approved to meet California’s four-hour training requirement.
