1 NO DATE: June 27, 2011 TO: FROM: SUBJECT: All Producers Licensed in New Jersey James P. Payne, Compliance Officer Suitability in Annuity Transactions The purpose of this Compliance Bulletin is to inform you of the new annuity suitability requirements adopted by New Jersey and the resulting procedural changes that you must follow when selling any National Western annuity product to consumers of all ages. A copy of the regulation is attached. Please take the time to read this bulletin and the accompanying regulation carefully and to familiarize yourself with all of the requirements. New Jersey adopted Subchapter 59 of the New Jersey Administrative Code, Disclosure and Suitability Requirements for Annuities Directly Solicited to Consumers ; in addition to other requirements, the regulation includes standards and procedures for recommendations to consumers that result in transactions involving annuity products so that the insurance needs and financial objectives of consumers at the time of the transactions are appropriately addressed. NEW ANNUITY SUITABILITY QUESTIONNAIRE JULY 1, 2011 COMPLIANCE DATE As a result of the new regulation in New Jersey, National Western has created a new Annuity Suitability Questionnaire that must be used with all annuity applicants in New Jersey. Effective July 1, 2011, National Western is requiring that Form DM-1174 (or any future revisions thereof) be used with all annuity applicants. This form must accompany all annuity applications dated on or after July 1, 2011, and you should keep a copy of the form for your records. National Western will not issue an annuity unless it has received a properly completed, signed Annuity Suitability Questionnaire. A copy of Form DM-1174 is attached to this bulletin and can be ordered from the Company or downloaded from BEACON. Again, please read the attached regulation carefully and familiarize yourself with the new Annuity Suitability Questionnaire, Form DM-1174, as there are substantial differences from the previous version in New Jersey. For example, please note the following: You are required to obtain more extensive, detailed information from the consumer under the New Jersey regulation such as liquidity needs, risk tolerance, and financial time horizon, in addition to other information that is now required under New Jersey law to determine the suitability of a recommendation. National Western will no longer allow a consumer to opt out of completing the new Annuity Suitability Questionnaire. This form is required for every application in New Jersey and must be completed in its entirety. In the case of an exchange or replacement of an annuity, the new questionnaire requires that (over) SH-1006.Rev.5.06

2 you obtain information regarding surrender charges, any loss of benefits, and previous exchange/replacement activity. National Western must now have procedures to review each of its insurance producer s recommendations prior to the issuance of an annuity that are designed to ensure that there is a reasonable basis to determine that a recommendation is suitable. National Western created its Annuity Suitability Questionnaire, and requires its use in all annuity sales, in order to assist our insurance producers in obtaining information from the consumer that would enable them to make suitable recommendations for the purchase or exchange of an annuity. It is your responsibility to make suitable recommendations based on the facts disclosed by the consumer. Again, please remember that Form DM-1174 (or any future revisions thereof) must be completed in its entirety (including the explanation section of the Agent Certification), all questions answered, and properly initialed and signed where indicated on the form. In addition, New Jersey also requires that the consumer sign a form acknowledging receipt of required notices stated in Subchapter 59. Along with the new Annuity Suitability Questionnaire, you must submit form DM-1198-NJ, Suitability Questionnaire Supplement for New Jersey Consumers. This form must be signed and dated by the consumer, and failure to submit this form to the Company will prohibit policy issuance. A copy of form DM-1198-NJ is attached to this bulletin. NEW INSURANCE PRODUCER TRAINING REQUIREMENTS The new regulation in New Jersey requires that insurers establish supervision procedures that include insurance producer training and monitoring. As a result of this requirement, National Western requires that insurance producers who sell to New Jersey residents must complete two training components: (1) A one-time, four hour general annuity training course approved by the Department and provided by a Department-approved education provider; and (2) Product-Specific Training for National Western annuity products. National Western is a member of the National Association for Fixed Annuities (NAFA), and as a NAFA member, we were able to partner with them to assist you in complying with both the one-time, fourcredit general annuity training and National Western s Product-Specific Training.
