Effective April 4, 2013, Idaho adopted the NAIC model annuity suitability standards. Idaho licensed producers who hold a life line of authority and sell annuities shall complete a one-time four-hour CE credit training course approved by the Department and provided by a Department-approved education provider. Producers who hold a life insurance license as of April 4, 2013, and who desire to sell annuities shall complete the course no later than October 4, 2013. Individuals who obtain a life insurance license on or after April 4, 2013 may not engage in the sale of annuities until the annuity training course has been completed.

Producers who sell annuities in Idaho may satisfy the requirement if they have completed a substantially similar course in another state. Insurers shall verify that their producers have completed the annuity training course required under this rule before allowing producers to sell an annuity product for them in Idaho.

Any producer who sells, solicits or negotiates a long-term care policy under Idaho’s Long-Term Care Insurance Partnership Program must receive eight hours of training in and demonstrate an understanding of Partnership Policies and their relationship to public and private coverage for long-term care.

Producers are also required to complete ongoing long-term care insurance training of no less than 4 hours every 24 months.

Let your sponsoring insurance company know when you have completed the Partnership Program course as they are required to obtain verification of training.
