SB 107 (BR 922) - T. Buford

     AN ACT relating to viatical settlement brokers.
     Amend KRS 304.15-700 to provide that an insurance agent licensed with a life line of authority shall be deemed to meet the requirements of a viatical settlement broker without obtaining a license as a viatical settlement broker; require a life insurance agent operating as a viatical settlement broker to have in force evidence of financial responsibility in the form of an insurance policy in the sum of not less than $20,000 for any single occurrence and $100,000 in the aggregate for all occurrences in 1 year, or cash deposited with the executive director in the sum of $20,000, or an agreement with a viatical settlement provider that the provider assumes the responsibility; exempt life insurance agents operating as viatical settlement brokers from the viatical settlement brokers financial responsibility requirement of $500,000 for one occurrence and $1.5 million in the aggregate for all occurrences in one year.


     SCS - Retain original provisions, except provide that one option for proof of financial responsibility may include an agreement between the viatical settlement provider and the agent to add the agent as an additional insured on the viatical settlement provider's errors and ommission insurance in the amount of $20,000, rather than allowing the viatical settlement provider to enter an agreement assuming responsibility for the agent.
