However, an overturn of a vehicle is specifically related to a collision between the vehicle and another object, making it a collision loss.

It is important for the Producer to promptly notify the Commission to maintain accurate and up-to-date information.

This requirement ensures transparency and accountability in the termination process, allowing the insured to understand the grounds on which their policy is being terminated. By providing a specific reason, the insurer is able to communicate any violations or breaches of the policy terms that have led to the termination. This helps to protect the rights and interests of both the insurer and the insured.

Loss of services refers to the compensation for the loss of the injured person's ability to perform household tasks or provide care to their family members. This can include activities such as cooking, cleaning, and childcare. Therefore, PIP coverage would provide financial assistance for the loss of services due to the accident.

  • 9. 

    Which of the following reasons may NOT be used to withdraw funds from a premium account?

    • A.

      Payment of claim to an insured

    • B.

      Refunding of Premium to another Insured

    • C.

      Purchase of Stocks

    • D.

      Payment of fees to a Laywer

    Correct Answer
    A. Payment of claim to an insured
    Explanation
    The reason "Payment of claim to an insured" may not be used to withdraw funds from a premium account because premium accounts are typically used for depositing and accumulating funds, not for making payments or withdrawals. The purpose of a premium account is to hold the premiums paid by policyholders and to generate interest or investment income for the insurer. The payment of claims to insured individuals is typically done from the insurer's general funds or from a separate claims reserve.

    Under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which of the following does not apply to coverage prohibited?

    • A.

      Available on a WYO Program

    • B.

      Subject to a deductible

    • C.

      Administered under FEMA

    • D.

      Coverage must be normally dry land

    Correct Answer
    B. Subject to a deductible
    Explanation
    This question is asking for the option that does not apply to coverage prohibited under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The correct answer is "Subject to a deductible." This means that coverage under the NFIP is not subject to a deductible. Deductibles are typically applied to insurance policies to determine the amount that the insured individual must pay out of pocket before the insurance coverage kicks in. However, under the NFIP, coverage is not subject to this deductible requirement.

    • C.

      A subjective basis and is arbitrary

    • D.

      An object basis and is arbitrary

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "An objective basis and is not arbitrary." This means that the insurer may refuse to issue property insurance on a risk location based on specific and measurable factors, such as the condition of the property or its proximity to potential hazards. The decision is not arbitrary, meaning it is not made randomly or without reason.

    Which of the following does the National Flood Insurance Program not provide coverage for?

    • A.

      Flash Flood

    • B.

      Tidal Bore

    • C.

      Tsunami

    • D.

      Mudslide

    Correct Answer
    D. Mudslide
    Explanation
    The National Flood Insurance Program provides coverage for various types of floods, including flash floods, tidal bores, and tsunamis. However, it does not provide coverage for mudslides. A mudslide is a type of landslide where a mass of mud, rocks, and debris moves rapidly down a slope. While it is related to heavy rainfall and can cause significant damage, it is not included in the coverage provided by the National Flood Insurance Program.

This bond serves as a financial guarantee to protect the MAIF and its policyholders in case the producer fails to fulfill their obligations or engages in fraudulent activities. By having a bond in place, the MAIF can ensure that there are sufficient funds available to cover any potential losses or damages caused by the producer's actions.

It is important for customers to be aware of this fee when considering financing options for their premiums.

    An insurer fails to provide notice of renewal premium due for a personal lines policy and subsequently the policy premium. The insured has a claim during this time. The Insurer…

    • A.

      Refuses to pay the claim

    • B.

      Deducts the premium owed from the claim payout before handling

    • C.

      Collects premium owed before handling claim

    • D.

      Will settle the premium owed at a later date

    Correct Answer
    C. Collects premium owed before handling claim
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Collects premium owed before handling claim" because the insurer failed to provide notice of renewal premium due for the policy. As a result, the insured has not paid the premium, and the insurer has the right to collect the outstanding premium before handling any claims. This ensures that the insured fulfills their financial obligation before receiving any benefits from the policy.

    What is a licensed insurance producer not required to provide to an applicant for flood insurance?

    • A.

      A guide on flood prevention

    • B.

      A explanatory document concerning the flood insurance policy

    • C.

      A statement that indicates a claim filed under the homeowner’s policy will cover any loss

    • D.

      A copy of the flood insurance documents in English

    Correct Answer
    C. A statement that indicates a claim filed under the homeowner’s policy will cover any loss
    Explanation
    A licensed insurance producer is not required to provide a statement that indicates a claim filed under the homeowner's policy will cover any loss when offering flood insurance. This is because flood insurance is a separate policy from homeowner's insurance and has its own terms and conditions for coverage. Therefore, it is important for the applicant to understand that flood insurance is necessary to cover losses specifically caused by floods, and it cannot be assumed that a homeowner's policy will provide the same coverage.

    • B.

      The information on policy limits

    • C.

      The notice must include alternate insurance

    • D.

      The Insurers name and addresss

    Correct Answer
    C. The notice must include alternate insurance
    Explanation
    The notice of intent to cancel a Worker's Compensation Policy is not required to include information about alternate insurance. This means that when an insurance company intends to cancel the policy, they do not have to provide information about any other insurance options that the policyholder can consider. The other options listed in the question, such as the effective date of the cancellation, information on policy limits, and the insurer's name and address, are all required components of the notice.

    • A.

      His policy rate will increase due to his handicap

    • B.

      His policy rate will increase due to his age

    • C.

      Reviewing his policy is a discriminatory practice, his policy will remain unchanged.

    • D.

      His policy will automatically have to be reviewed due to his age and physical condition

    Correct Answer
    D. His policy will automatically have to be reviewed due to his age and physical condition
    Explanation
    Insurance companies typically review policies when the insured reaches a certain age or has a physical condition that may affect their ability to drive safely. In this case, John is 66 years old and has a physical handicap, which indicates that he may be at a higher risk of being involved in an accident. Therefore, his policy will automatically have to be reviewed to assess the potential impact of his age and physical condition on his ability to drive and determine if any adjustments need to be made to his policy.

    • C.

      Appliances

    • D.

      Sporting equipment

    Correct Answer

This coverage is specifically designed to protect high-value personal belongings that may be difficult or expensive to replace.

    • B.

      Rates phased over a 10-year period at 10% per year

    • C.

      Rates phased over a 5-year period at 20% per year

    • D.

      Rates are changed on the fifth year at the start date of the policy

    Correct Answer
    C. Rates phased over a 5-year period at 20% per year
    Explanation
    When flood maps change and a property has higher rates as a result, the rates will be gradually phased in over a 5-year period at a rate of 20% per year. This means that the property owner will experience a gradual increase in their rates over the course of 5 years, with a 20% increase each year. This phased approach allows the property owner to adjust to the higher rates gradually rather than facing a sudden and significant increase all at once.

    • D.

      The disclosure requires the endorsement of the Commissioner of the State of Maryland.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The requirement for the disclosure to be distributed to National Flood Insurance is that the font size of the disclosure must be twice the size of the body of the policy. This means that the text in the disclosure must be larger than the text in the policy document. The other options mentioned, such as the document's introduction, the document being printed in a physical copy, and the endorsement of the Commissioner of the State of Maryland, are not mentioned as requirements for the disclosure.

      Advise on the terms, coverages, or benefits of insurance contracts and charge a fee for advice

    Correct Answer
    D. Advise on the terms, coverages, or benefits of insurance contracts and charge a fee for advice
    Explanation
    An insurance adviser license authorizes individuals to provide advice on the terms, coverages, or benefits of insurance contracts and charge a fee for their advice. This means that they are legally permitted to offer guidance and recommendations to clients regarding various aspects of insurance policies, such as the terms and conditions, the types of coverage available, and the benefits that can be obtained. They are also allowed to charge a fee for their expertise and services in providing this advice. This license does not authorize them to qualify as a bail bondsman, re-write insurance policies, or issue licenses to other potential insurance advisers.

      15 days after an insurer

    • C.

      30 days after an insurer

    • D.

      45 days after an insurer

    Correct Answer
    C. 30 days after an insurer
    Explanation
    The Property and casualty guaranty corporation is required to pay the full amount of any claim 30 days after an insurer. This means that if an insurer fails to fulfill their obligation to pay a claim, the guaranty corporation will step in and pay the claim within 30 days. This ensures that policyholders are still protected even if their insurer becomes insolvent or is unable to pay the claim.

    All licensed insurance producers who are acting on behalf of an insurance company must obtain an appointment from an insurer in order to sell, solicit, or negotiate property and casualty. This is because insurance producers are individuals who are authorized to sell insurance policies and represent insurance companies. By obtaining an appointment from an insurer, they are officially recognized and authorized to act on behalf of the insurance company in selling and negotiating insurance policies in the property and casualty sector.

    • A.

      Wrongful Termination

    • B.

      Worker's Compensation

    • C.

      Sexual Harassment

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    B. Worker's Compensation
    Explanation
    Worker's Compensation is an exclusion under Employment Practices Liability coverage because it is a separate type of insurance that covers workplace injuries or illnesses. Employment Practices Liability coverage specifically protects against claims related to wrongful termination, sexual harassment, and alleged discrimination. Worker's Compensation, on the other hand, provides benefits to employees who are injured or become ill as a result of their job. Therefore, it is not included in Employment Practices Liability coverage.
