  • OK Regulatory Update 1435.15 (B)

Are other carriers and firms interpreting the update from Oklahoma as "pre-appoint"?

B. To appoint a producer as its agent, the appointing insurer, or an authorized representative of the insurer, shall file, in a format approved by the Insurance Commissioner, a notice of appointment within fifteen (15) days from the date the contract is executed".  

Note:  Courtney Khodabakhsh, Oklahoma’s Licensing Division Manager, will review requirement with attendees.

  • Agent Production

Does anyone keep statistics they are willing to share with respect to the percentage of agents appointed with your company that produce business?


  • Producer licensing - permitted unlicensed activities

Is anyone willing to share, or perhaps point me to where this might already exist, permitted tasks for unlicensed CSRs?


  • Producer License

Does anyone know which states require a producer license to have a general discussion about insurance? Florida and Michigan come to mind, but I know there are a few more.
