New Tennessee Annuity Requirement
Effective November 1, 2015, the Tennessee Commissioner of Commerce and Insurance adopted revisions to Suitability in Annuity Transactions. Chapter 0780-01-86 discusses requirements for any person seeking to recommend, sell, exchange, or replace annuities in the State of Tennessee. These rules also require insurance producers to complete training prior to selling annuities. In addition, these rules require insurers, general agents, independent agencies, and insurance producers to keep records of annuity recommendations and transactions. Please click here to view this Chapter in its entirety.

Securities Training Corporation has a course to satisfy this requirement. For more information, please contact Continuing Education Coordinator, Jean Carter, at (800) 782-2678 ext. 204 or
