<Question:  Why wasn't the Policy Information for Applicant - Universal Life adopted by States?>

To date, no state has adopted these forms.

Why this complete lack of action after all the effort in developing the forms?

  • One possible reason is that, during the early part of the year, state insurance departments are generally busy dealing with the  legislatures, which customarily are in session then.
  • Also, it takes a few months for new NAIC regulations to be officially published, distributed, and adapted for individual state use.
  • Many states also have been occupied with more urgent concerns, such as automobile and health insurance rates and solvency questions.
