DFS Encourages Licensees to Update Addresses
The Florida Department of Financial Services recently highlighted the need for agents to updated their addresses in its Insurance Insights publication. In particular, DFS noted that many life and health agents work from home but lease the opportunity to use conference rooms for meeting with clients outside of their homes. In these cases, the agents typically maintain their business records at home and not at the leased conference facilities. According to DFS, the agent’s home address should be listed as the business address on file with the Department, not the location of the rented space. The address can be updated through the My Profile function on the DFS’ website.
