Model state regulation that governs method of selling life insurance to prevent fraud or misrepresentation by agents or insurers. A life insurance disclosure model regulation to help buyers understand the basic policy features and evaluate costs of similar insurance plans was adopted on an interim basis in 1973 and revised in 1976 and 1983. Today, insurers must provide a buyer's guide and a policy summary to prospective buyers. Insurers must keep files of authorized documents; agents must identify themselves and the company they represent and cannot represent themselves as financial planners or investment advisers unless they in fact are. In addition, reference to a dividend or any non guaranteed item must be identified as such.
