An insurance producer may not sell, solicit, or negotiate an annuity product unless the producer has completed an approved one-time 4-hour training course. This requirement is effective June 1, 2017. Insurance producers who hold a life insurance line of authority as of June 1, 2017, and who wish to sell annuities must complete the training requirement by December 1, 2017. Individuals who obtain a life insurance line of authority on or after June 1, 2017, may not engage in the sale of annuities until the one-time annuity training course has been completed. Please note: The Delaware DOI has advised that the credit type for Annuity Suitability: 4-Hour Training Course is “Long Term Care”. Despite this required credit type, the course does meet the Delaware one-time annuity training requirement as indicated in the bracketed information of the course title.
