New York Best Interest Rule for Life Insurance New Requirements for Producers & Ethical Considerations for Other Estate Planners
On July 18th 2018, the New York Department of Financial Services (NY DFS) issued a Best Interest Rule Regulation 187 that (re)defines the meaning of “clients’ best interests” for life insurance product recommendations effective February 2020. Regulation 187 prohibits illustration comparisons as due diligence for product and instead requires product recommendations be based on a careful, skilled, prudent, and diligent evaluation of costs, performance, and risks relative to benefits.
In this important, wide-ranging webinar, Barry Flagg reviews the Best Interest Rule that raises significant ethical considerations for estate planners and life insurance producers serving fiduciaries and/or working under a fiduciary definition of “clients’ best interests” both in and outside New York. In his webinar, Barry will cover the following topics:
- Product recommendations under NY DFS Best Interest Rule for life insurance
- Product Recommendations under the NAIC Illustrations Model Regulation
