I am registered with FINRA, do I have to complete the Annuity Suitability and Best Interest training requirement?

Yes, producers registered with FINRA who engage in the sale of annuities must complete a one-time 4-hour training course as required. If the 4-hour training course was completed prior to effective date, to remain qualified to engage in the sale of annuities, the producer must complete either a one-time 4-credit training course approved on or after effective date or a one-time 1-credit training course approved on or after the effective date, which includes updated training content. Producers selling, soliciting, or negotiating variable life and variable annuity (VA) products are required to be licensed with the Variable Annuities line of authority and be registered with FINRA.
