The purpose of this Act is to require producers, as defined in Section 1 of this Act to act in the best interest of the consumer when making a recommendation of an annuity and to require insurers to establish and maintain a system to supervise recommendations so that the insurance needs and financial objectives of consumers at the time of the transaction are effectively addressed.

Section 4. That § 58-33A-16 be AMENDED:
58-33A-16. A producer, when making a recommendation of an annuity, shall act in the best interest of the consumer under the circumstances known at the time the recommendation is made, without placing the producer’s or the insurer’s financial interest ahead of the consumer’s interest. For purposes of this section, a producer has acted in the best interest of the consumer by satisfying the obligations regarding care in sections 7 to 9 of this Act, inclusive, disclosure in sections 11 to 13 of this Act, inclusive, conflict of interest in section 14 of this Act, and documentation in section 15 of this Act. Any requirement applicable to a producer under §§ 58-33A-13 to 58-33A-27, inclusive, must apply to every producer who has exercised material control or influence in the making of a recommendation and has received direct compensation as a result of the recommendation or sale, regardless of whether the producer has had any direct contact with the consumer. Activities such as providing or delivering marketing or educational materials, product wholesaling or other back office product support, and general supervision of a producer do not, in and of themselves, constitute material control or influence.
Section 5. That § 58-33A-17.1 be REPEALED.
Section 6. That § 58-33A-17 be REPEALED.
Section 7. That chapter 58-33A be amended with a NEW SECTION:
Producers must, in making a recommendation:
(1) Exercise reasonable diligence, care, and skill to:
(a) Know the consumer’s financial situation, insurance needs, and financial objectives;
(b) Understand the available recommendation options after making a reasonable inquiry into options available to the producer;
(c) Have a reasonable basis to believe the recommended option effectively addresses the consumer’s financial situation, insurance needs, and financial objectives over the life of the product as evaluated in light of the consumer profile information; and
(d) Communicate the basis or bases of the recommendation;
(2) Make reasonable efforts to obtain consumer profile information from the consumer prior to the recommendation of an annuity;
(3) Consider the types of products the producer is authorized and licensed to recommend or sell that address the consumer’s financial situation, insurance needs, and financial objectives. This does not require analysis or consideration of any products outside the authority and license of the producer or other possible alternative products or strategies available in the market at the time of the recommendation. Producers must be held to standards applicable to producers with similar authority and licensure; and
(4) Have a reasonable basis to believe the consumer would benefit from certain features of the annuity, such as annuitization, death or living benefit, or other insurance-related features.
Factors generally relevant in making a determination whether an annuity effectively addresses the consumer’s financial situation, insurance needs, and financial objectives include the consumer profile information, characteristics of the insurer, product costs, rates, benefits, and features. The level of importance of each factor in this section may vary depending on the facts and circumstances of a particular case, but each factor may not be considered in isolation.
Section 8. That chapter 58-33A be amended with a NEW SECTION:
The requirements of section 7 of this Act:

(2) The replacing product would substantially benefit the consumer in comparison to the replaced product over the life of the product; and
(3) The consumer has had another annuity exchange or replacement and, in particular, an exchange or replacement within the preceding sixty months.
Section 10. That § 58-33A-18 be AMENDED:
58-33A-18. Except as provided pursuant to § 58-33A-19, a producer has no obligation to a consumer under § 58-33A-17 and sections 7 through 9 of this Act, inclusive, related to any annuity transaction if:
(1) A consumer refuses to provide relevant consumer profile information and the annuity transaction is not recommended;
(2) A consumer decides to enter into an annuity transaction that is not based on a recommendation of the producer;

Any violation of §§ 58-33A-13 to 58-33A-27, inclusive subjects the insurer, producer, or general agency or independent agency to suspension, revocation, refusal to renew a license, or to a monetary penalty as provided for under this title. However, the penalty may be reduced or eliminated, if corrective action for the consumer is taken promptly after a violation is discovered or the violation was not part of a pattern or practice.
