DEPARTMENT OF LABOR’S NEW DEFINITION OF “FIDUCIARY” COULD AFFECT YOUR BUSINESS RISK
NEW! Target is now offering a policy endorsement that covers services rendered under the Department of Labor’s (DOL’s) recently expanded definition of a “fiduciary.”
The new “Fiduciary Services Endorsement” will parallel the DOL’s broader definition and cover insureds as fiduciaries when involved in the sales or servicing of:
Individuals and/or group plans for life, accident, health (including Blue Cross/Blue Shield Organizations) and disability income insurance or annuities;
variable products, including but not limited to variable annuities, flexible and scheduled premium annuities; variable life insurance; contracts providing for participation in life insurance
company separate investment accounts or life insurance company general investment accounts.
If you are a current customer and would like to add this endorsement to your existing policy, or if you’d like to include this coverage with a new policy,
please contact Rosalind Hodges at: 312-855-2043 or RHodges@TargetProIns.com.
Effective 7/24, this policy endorsement will be automatically included when you apply for new coverage, or renew expiring coverage. In both cases, you will have an opportunity
to “opt out” if you do not wish to add this coverage to your policy.
You'll find that Target's Professional Liability coverage is customized to cover the types of claims typically lodged against life & health agents -- even when the accusations may be false. What's more, Target's clients receive expert legal representation.
