The proctor must be over the age of 18 and cannot be a friend or relative nor anyone with a financial interest in the exam result. A co-worker may proctor the exam, but only if they are not above or below the licensee's line of supervision. .
Description

In this course you will be introduced to terms and concepts used in connection with annuity contracts. Each new term is defined in the text and included in the Glossary. The concepts are explained and, where appropriate, are demonstrated through the use of examples.

At the conclusion of each module, a quiz is presented to test comprehension of the material presented in the module. A response is given to each answer you select to the questions in the quiz affirming the correct choice or explaining why the choice you selected was incorrect.

This information is important for agents selling annuity contracts to customers and for advisers assessing the appropriateness of an annuity contract for a client. An understanding of the operation, advantages and disadvantages of annuities and the methods used to determine their cash value will assist the agent and adviser to better serve consumers and help ensure that annuity contracts are recommended and purchased only when they are suitable to meet client needs.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this basic course, the student should be able to:

  1. Describe a typical annuity buyer and the principal reasons individuals buy annuity contracts
  2. List the characteristics of annuities and the benefits of tax deferral
