STATEMENT REGARDING ALTERING COMPENSATION

MMA is prohibited by law in most states from altering the amount of compensation received from an insurer based in whole or in part on the sale of an insurance policy.

This disclosure is mandated by New York State Insurance Department Regulation No. 194 (11 NYCRR 30) §30.3(5). We interpret this provision to refer to the various anti-rebating insurance laws throughout the country, such as New York Insurance Law §2324 which prohibits insurance companies, agents and brokers from sharing or rebating commissions as an inducement to making an insurance contract. MMA makes the above statement based on that interpretation.
