Use Of Professional Designations In Washington

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Washington Rule 284-17-605 prohibits the misleading use of producers' senior-specific certifications and other professional designations in the advertising and sale of life insurance and annuities. The new rule adopts standards of determining when use of a senior-specific certification or designation is prohibited, and it provides guidance on whether an organization issuing a designation is qualified to do so. The rule follows the NAIC's Model Regulation on the Use of Senior-Specific Certifications and Professional Designations in the Sale of Life Insurance and Annuities.
