Affiliation and Licensing and Contracting Information for
Advisors Insurance Brokers and it's Affiliated Companies.
Affiliation: After we received your request to be affiliated with Advisors Insurance Brokers, we will send you our Affiliation Forms for completion. When you return your affiliation forms, you may request contracting forms for any of our life, long-term care, DI or annuity carriers
Required Documents: Once we have your Affiliation Forms, and our Contracting Questionnaire and copies of all necessary licenses, CE certifications (LTC and AML), and E&O coverage certification, we will process all of your contracting requests once you have or will be writing a new business policy.
Effective Date of Appointments: Many states have "Just-in-Time" appointments, which means that the carrier will appoint you with the receipt of a new business application. There are a few states that re- quire you to be appointed prior to soliciting an application, and we will advise you of a state's "pre-appointment" rules at the time of your request to be contracted with a particular carrier.
Errors & Omissions (E&O): Most carriers require you to carry E&O coverage, and we will require a copy of your E&O coverage certificate that shows your name. If you are covered under a blanket policy with your agency or corporation, then a letter from your E&O carrier stating that you are covered can be accepted.
Long-Term Care Partnership (LTCI) CE Certification is required for most states. Check with
"ClearCert," an approved education vendor, at their Web Site www.clearcert.com Click on "regulations" to discern if your state has any special solicitation requirements as well as which education vendors offer the required training.
Contract Date: Technically, your appointment date on all of your contracting forms must be before any signature dates on new business. You will be notified via email or mail when your appointment has been completed.
Appointment Fees are required by some carriers if you are requesting additional appointments in non- resident states. We will advise you of non-resident appointment fee requirements.
AML Training: Anti-money laundering training is required for all life, annuity, and DI carrier appointments. Log on to the course at https://aml.limra.com.
