AML Practices for the Insurance Producer: Recognizing Red Flags


Insurance producers are the first and best defense against the use of insurance products in money-laundering schemes. This course is intended to help the insurance producer identify AML (anti-money laundering)"red flags"- those situations and circumstances that may be a sign of insurance products being used for money-laundering purposes.

The course includes an overview of federal AML law and rules, focuses on the role of the producer in ensuring the success of AML programs, and covers red flag activities that may occur both at the application stage, and throughout the life of a policy or annuity product. The course guides the producer through the appropriate steps to take when red flags are detected and presents "best practices" applicable to the producer's business.
