William Penn just came out with their guidelines for Regulation 187. Instructions are below but the gist of it is that you will need to log into LIMRA, go to the Best Interests section and click on the link for Legal & General. It will then show you a product overview and that is the extent of their training. I highly encourage everyone to do this right away since the William Penn term product is popular. Will only take a 2 minutes.
ALSO, there is a link below to the new suitability form to satisfy the new best interests standard.
Starting on February 1, 2020, New York’s Regulation 187 will require agents to comply with a “best interest” standard when selling life insurance to New York residents.
