Personal auto insurance is no exception, and a firm understanding of all parts of the policy is vital for any property agent. This course presents each part (A, B, C, D, E, and F) of the personal auto policy one at a time, examining the general provisions and conditions stipulated in each. In addition to the basic issue of what is covered, the course takes the opportunity to explain other points, such as who is covered and what is explicitly NOT covered.

    Course Description

    One of the hottest issues facing the insurance industry today involves toxic mold claims under both personal and commercial lines policies. After several recent multi – million dollar judgments, attorneys are comparing this to asbestos and lead paint claims with regard to the litigation potential. From the standpoint of commercial exposures, toxic mold claims are beginning to rival “construction defect” claims in numbers and magnitude. Home and business owners are looking to their insurers and contractors, building material suppliers, plumbers, and others for remuneration for real or perceived property damage and bodily injury. Mold exists everywhere in our environment. Some molds like penicillin are beneficial, while other types of mold can cause health problems. Concern over so – called “toxic mold” is growing as the medical community begins to understand some of the ailments such mold can cause. Other than EPA and CDC guidelines, there appear to be few, if any, state or federal regulations regarding mold infestations and remediation. Lack of mold awareness also has been part of the problem. The truth is that while liability issues may be debated among insurers, property professionals, and others, uncontrolled mold growth will only heighten property and health claims unless quickly checked and remediated. The goal of this course is to increase awareness of mold and its affect on the insurance industry.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Know and identify Mold Facts and Misconceptions.
  • Know how Toxic Mold Investigations are conducted.
  • Understand Toxic Mold and the importance of Remediation.

    Course Description

    Legal responsibilities are fundamental. An insurance agent walks a difficult line with legal responsibilities to both an insurance company and a client. When the agent does not live up to these responsibilities, there is the threat of being sued. Periodically, every agent should review the legal responsibilities of an agent in modern society. An insurance agent’s social, ethical and professional responsibilities may be optional; but legal responsibilities are not. Legal responsibilities are the minimum amount that is required of every agent. If he does not live up to his legal responsibilities, he will end up out of business and maybe even behind bars. Because legal responsibilities are determined by common law, statute, and case law, they are evolving. An agent must remain current, making adjustments for trends and refinements. The purpose of this course is to provide the student with a knowledge and understanding of these legal responsibilities and insurance principles. Topics include: Principles of Insurance, Characteristics of Legal Responsibilities, Illegal Acts of an Insurance Agent, Ethics in the Insurance Agency, and Legal Issues in Insurance Fraud.

    Course Description

    Our industry is being besieged by matters of compliance. This is especially true in the areas of life insurance and securities. Some may privately express the view that compliance is an impediment to doing business and doing it successfully. But isn’t the question really: should short – term gains take priority over long – term client relationships? At first sight, it seems that career agents for the major companies are most affected by strict compliance regulations. While, independent insurance agents and those not closely associated with a major insurer are untouched by compliance requirements.

    Compliance enforcement and oversight may be more difficult, as those who supervise agents’ activities may be further removed in time and place from the sales process. The intention of this course is to refocus you on compliant and ethical professional behavior. If you always concentrate on a client’s needs and place them above your own, compliance should not be an obstacle in your practice. Putting the client first seems a simple concept, but sometimes it is difficult to implement. Topics covered include: Compliance, Ethics and Professionalism , Our Working Legal Framework, Communication and the Sales Process, Common Compliance Problems, Ethics and Compliance in Practice.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Understand the importance of compliance, ethics and professionalism.
  • Understand the relationship of Compliance vs. Ethics.
  • Know and understand the Legal Framework provided by federal, state and common law.
  • Understand communication and its importance to the Sales Process.
  • Identify and understand common compliance problems.
  • Put Ethics and Compliance into Practice.

    TOPICS COVERED:

  • LESSON 1: Introduction
  • LESSON 2: Our Working Legal Framework
  • LESSON 3: Communication and the Sales Process
  • LESSON 4: Common Compliance Problems
  • LESSON 5: Conclusion
  • LESSON 6: Appendix.

    Course Description

    Before 1968, the federal government’s flood initiatives consisted of disaster relief to victims in the event of a flood, or flood control projects such as dams, levees and seawalls. While well – intentioned, this approach did little to ease the financial burden of most flood victims. Worse, the public couldn’t buy flood coverage from most insurance companies, which regarded floods as too costly to insure.

    Congress established the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) to address both the need for flood insurance and the need to lessen the devastating consequences of flooding. The goals of the program are twofold: to protect communities from potential flood damage through floodplain management, and to provide people with flood insurance.

    For decades, the NFIP has been offering flood insurance to homeowners, renters and business owners, with the one condition that their communities adopt and enforce measures to help reduce the consequences of flooding.

    Flood insurance is the best protection that home and business owners have against the devastating financial losses that floods cause.

    According to the Washington, DC – based Coalition / Against Insurance Fraud (CAlF) for the insurance industry, and for the public as well, insurance fraud costs $85 billion per year. With such substantial damage, it is no wonder that the industry is making significant efforts to battle this cancer. The industry has decided that increasing public awareness of fraud is its main course of action. The coalition strongly believes that public attitudes are crucial to curtailing fraud. There are no easy solutions to the problems of insurance fraud. Consumers, legislators, regulators, and insurers must work together over the long term to create an environment that either prevents insurance fraud or detects it easily when it occurs. The first step in this process is creating a baseline understanding of the problem and potential solutions.

  • Know and understand “Ethics” and “Fraud” Definitions.
  • Know and identify Insurance Fraud Facts.

    Course Description

    The impact of “Employer Practices” for the insurance industry has become increasingly subject to legal constraints. An expanding series of laws regulate almost every facet of the employer – employee relationship. The laws deal with employee recruitment, testing, wages, benefits, nondiscrimination, occupational safety and health, workers’ compensation, wrongful discharge, unemployment insurance, pensions and other matters. Employers in the insurance industry must have knowledge of the law to avoid pitfalls. Employees in the insurance industry must also have knowledge of the law so they can defend themselves when employers act illegally or when they feel their rights have been violated.

    Although the study of “Employer Practices” is worthy of several volumes, this course will provide a general overview of the more common employer practice issues confronting the insurance industry. To set the stage a brief overview is given of the industry and its employment of agents and brokers, who will be taking this course. This is followed by a history of the employer – employee relationship. In chapter one the laws are placed on a time line providing a rationale for why these prohibitions and rights were created. With this information as the foundation, the laws are outlined and employer practices, from pre – hiring to post – termination, are reviewed. This overview provides some practical applications to the law. Suggestions are made as to some “do’s and don’ts” that should be considered.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Identify employer practices related laws .
  • Identify employer practices .
  • Explain legal concepts related to employer practices .
  • Identify employer practice areas of liability exposure .
  • Identify some “do’s and don’ts” to minimize employer practices liability .

By engaging in this type of activity, criminals hope that their proceeds will be beyond the reach of asset forfeiture laws. Financial institutions such as insurance companies are at the forefront of the battle against the money launderers. Under current legislation, insurance companies are responsible for policing their financial dealings and reporting any suspicious transactions. This course will dwell upon the new regulatory environment of the insurance industry vis a vis money laundering, specifically the USA Patriot Act 2001. The course aims to highlight the key aspects of the USA Patriot Act namely, the Suspicious Activities Report (SAR) and the “Know Your Customer” provision (KYC).
