  • Florida Division of (Insurance) Agents and Agency Services Proposed Rule Hearing; 10:30 a.m. Tallahassee, Florida. Proposed amendments to Rule 69B-162.011 would conform to statutory revisions under SB 166, which substantially revised Florida consumer protection laws relating to the sales of annuities by incorporating the 2010 National Association of Insurance Commissioners’ Suitability in Annuity Transactions Model Regulation.  The proposed Rule would extend protections previously afforded senior consumers in annuity transactions to consumers of any age, along with other changes.  To view the hearing notice, click here.

Thursday, June 19

  • Florida Office of Insurance Regulation (“OIR”) Proposed Rule Hearing; 9:30 a.m. Tallahassee, Florida.
    • A repeal of Rules 69O-123.001, “Purpose” and 69O-123.002, “Procedure,” relating to the filing of civil remedy notices is proposed because the Florida Department of Financial Services (“DFS”) administers the applicable statutory requirements by Rule 69J-123.002. F.A.C.  The OIR does not enforce the provisions of the filing requirements, therefore the Rules are deemed as unnecessary.  To view the Notice of Proposed Rule, click here.
    • A repeal of Rule Chapter 69O-228 relating to continuing education requirements of insurance representatives is proposed, inasmuch as the OIR does not exercise authority over insurance representatives.  Rather, this is the role of the DFS.
    • Consideration of proposed amendments to Rule 69O-148.001, which addresses requirements for insurance policies that fund annuities and preneed contracts. Currently, the Rule caps the maximum face amount at $7,500 and the statute caps it at $12,500. The proposed Rule would remove the dollar amount cap and refer instead to the statute, thereby conforming the Rule with current law.
