New! Annuity Best Interest Training Course Group Now Available
Wisconsin Best Interest Law (2021 Wis. Act 260) requires an intermediary who engages in the sale of annuities to complete updated annuity training which includes the best interest standard. Producers that completed an approved annuities training course prior to October 1, 2022, must complete either a one-time, 4-hour annuity training best interest course or a one-time, 1-hour refresher annuity training-best interest course within six months of the effective date of the Act. The deadline for intermediaries to complete this updated training is April 1, 2023.
New or updated courses must be submitted for approval under the new course group name,
Annuity Training-Best Interest, via State Based Systems (SBS).
Please note: Courses currently active under the course group name of
Annuity Training will be deactivated
