    An insurer owned by a parent company that provides insurance to voer the parent company's loss exposures is a:

    • A.

      Reciprocal insurer

    • B.

      Captive insurer

    • C.

      Mutual insurer

    • D.

      Stock insurer

    Correct Answer
    B. Captive insurer
    Explanation
    A captive insurer is an insurance company that is owned by a parent company and provides insurance coverage exclusively for the parent company's loss exposures. This means that the captive insurer is created to insure the risks of its parent company and its affiliates, rather than offering insurance to the general public. Captive insurers are commonly used by large corporations to gain more control over their insurance programs and potentially reduce costs.

      Military service

    • C.

      Aviation

    • D.

      Accidental injury

    D. Accidental injury
    Explanation
    Accidental injury is not excluded by group life insurance. This means that if a person covered by a group life insurance policy dies due to an accidental injury, their beneficiaries would still be eligible to receive the death benefit. In contrast, war, military service, and aviation are typically excluded from group life insurance coverage, meaning that if a person dies as a result of any of these factors, their beneficiaries would not receive the death benefit.

    Which of the following could be used to pay off the mortgage on a home, providing a death benefit that equals the amount of outstanding debt on the home, no more and no less?

    • A.

      Home service insurance

    • B.

      Decreasing insurance

    • C.

      Home warranty

    Correct Answer
    B. Decreasing insurance
    Explanation
    Decreasing insurance could be used to pay off the mortgage on a home, providing a death benefit that equals the amount of outstanding debt on the home, no more and no less. Decreasing insurance is a type of life insurance where the coverage amount decreases over time, typically matching the outstanding balance on a mortgage. This ensures that in the event of the policyholder's death, the insurance payout will be sufficient to pay off the remaining mortgage debt, providing financial security to the homeowner's family.

    • A.

      The total death benefit will be paid to a beneficiary on the death of the insured

    • B.

      The death benefit will always be paid to the estate of the insured

    • C.

      The total premium must be paid to the insurer

    • D.

      The policy creates cash value

    Correct Answer
    A. The total death benefit will be paid to a beneficiary on the death of the insured
    Explanation
    The phrase "life insurance creates an immediate estate" means that upon the death of the insured, the full death benefit will be paid directly to a designated beneficiary. This implies that the beneficiary will receive the entire sum of the insurance policy immediately, without any delays or complications. The phrase does not suggest that the death benefit will be paid to the insured's estate or that the premium must be paid to the insurer. Additionally, it does not imply that the policy creates cash value.

    Every insurer offering individual life insurance policies or annuities to senior citizens that use none-guaranteed elements in illustrations must provide a statement to that effect. Which of the following is correct regarding this statement?

    • A.

      Non-guaranteed elements must be in bold print

    • B.

      Guaranteed and non-guaranteed elements must be in bold print, at the discretion of the agent.

    • C.

      Guaranteed elements must be in bold print and non-guaranteed elements must be in plain type

    • D.

      All statements must be in plain type

    Correct Answer
    A. Non-guaranteed elements must be in bold print
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that non-guaranteed elements must be in bold print. This means that when insurers provide illustrations for individual life insurance policies or annuities to senior citizens, any elements that are not guaranteed (such as potential returns or bonuses) must be clearly highlighted in bold print. This requirement ensures that senior citizens are aware of the potential risks and uncertainties associated with these non-guaranteed elements.

    The usual amount of death benefit in an industrial life insurance policy is

    • A.

      $10,000 to $25,000

    • B.

      $50,000-$100,000

    • C.

      Less than $2,000

    • D.

      $100,000

    Correct Answer
    C. Less than $2,000
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Less than $2,000". This is because industrial life insurance policies typically provide smaller death benefits compared to other types of life insurance policies. These policies are designed to cover funeral expenses and other immediate financial needs rather than providing a large sum of money to beneficiaries. Therefore, the death benefit in an industrial life insurance policy is usually less than $2,000.

  • 10. 

    Which of the following allows employees to share in the financial success of the company?

    • A.

      Tax-sheltered account

    • B.

      Simplified employee pension plan

    • C.

      Keogh plan

    • D.

      Profit-sharing plan

    Correct Answer
    D. Profit-sharing plan
    Explanation
    A profit-sharing plan allows employees to share in the financial success of the company. This type of plan involves distributing a portion of the company's profits to its employees, usually in the form of cash or company stock. The amount distributed is typically based on a predetermined formula, such as a percentage of the company's profits or the employee's salary. By implementing a profit-sharing plan, companies can provide an incentive for employees to work towards the company's financial goals and reward them for their contributions to its success.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    In which of the following qualified pension plans are benefits linked tot he employee's years of service and / or amound of compensation?

    • A.

      Defined benefit plan

    • B.

      Keogh plan

    • C.

      Defined contribution plan

    • D.

      Tax-sheltered account

    Correct Answer
    A. Defined benefit plan
    Explanation
    A defined benefit plan is a qualified pension plan where the benefits are directly linked to the employee's years of service and/or the amount of their compensation. This means that the longer an employee works for the company and the higher their compensation, the greater their pension benefits will be. In contrast, a defined contribution plan does not guarantee a specific benefit amount and instead, the employee's retirement benefits are based on the contributions made to the plan and the investment returns on those contributions. Keogh plans and tax-sheltered accounts are types of retirement plans, but they do not specifically link benefits to years of service or compensation.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    The Social security age of retirement is dependent upon:

    • A.

      The individual's date of birth

    • B.

      The amount of compensation earned prior to retirement

    • C.

      The number of quarters earned

    Correct Answer
    A. The individual's date of birth
    Explanation
    The individual's date of birth is a determining factor for the Social Security age of retirement. The Social Security Administration has set specific age thresholds for retirement benefits based on birth dates. These thresholds determine when individuals become eligible to receive full retirement benefits. The date of birth helps in calculating the number of quarters earned and the amount of compensation earned prior to retirement, which are also factors in determining Social Security benefits.

    Life insurance illustrations showing premiums, values, credits or charges that are not determined at issue demonstrate:

    • A.

      Non-Guaranteed elements

    • B.

      Guaranteed elements

    • C.

      Minimum assumed expenses

    • D.

      Supplemental illustrations

    Correct Answer
    A. Non-Guaranteed elements
    Explanation
    Life insurance illustrations showing premiums, values, credits, or charges that are not determined at issue demonstrate non-guaranteed elements. Non-guaranteed elements are those aspects of the policy that are subject to change and are not guaranteed by the insurance company. These elements can include dividends, interest rates, and other variables that may affect the policy's performance. The presence of non-guaranteed elements in the illustration indicates that the values and outcomes depicted are not guaranteed and may vary over time.

      Employer stock

    • B.

      Mutual funds

    • C.

      Corporate bonds

    • D.

      Employer's investments

    Correct Answer
    A. Employer stock
    Explanation
    An ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) invests in employer stock. This means that the plan allows employees to become partial owners of the company they work for by investing in the company's stock. This can be done through various means such as purchasing shares directly or receiving them as part of their compensation. By investing in employer stock, employees have the potential to benefit from the company's success and growth, as the value of their shares can increase over time.

    When an insurer presents an illustration for life insurance, all of the following are prohibited, except:

    • A.

      Stating that the amount of non-guaranteed elements is guaranteed

    • B.

      Using the insurer's "disciplined current scale" in the illustration

    • C.

      Including a description of a "vanishing premium"

    • D.

      Providing the applicant with an incomplete illustration

    Correct Answer
    B. Using the insurer's "disciplined current scale" in the illustration
    Explanation
    Using the insurer's "disciplined current scale" in the illustration is prohibited when an insurer presents an illustration for life insurance. A "disciplined current scale" is a method used by insurers to project future policy values based on certain assumptions. However, using this scale in the illustration can be misleading as it may give the impression that the projected values are guaranteed, when in fact they are not. Therefore, it is prohibited to use the insurer's "disciplined current scale" in the illustration.

    • A.

      19

    • B.

      20

    • C.

      21

    • D.

      22

    Correct Answer
    C. 21
    Explanation
    In a group life plan, unmarried children can be covered as dependents until they reach the age of 21. This means that as long as they are not married, they can continue to receive coverage under their parent's group life plan until they turn 21 years old. After reaching this age, they would no longer be eligible for coverage as dependents and would need to seek alternative insurance options.

    Explanation
    A stock insurer is an insurance company that is owned by individuals who purchase shares of stock in the company. These shareholders share in the profits of the company in proportion to the number of shares they own. They also have the right to vote for a board of directors who make important decisions for the company.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is based on the number of quarters earned. This means that in order to be eligible for Social Security retirement benefits, a worker must have accumulated a certain number of work credits, which are earned by paying Social Security taxes on their earnings. The more quarters a worker has earned, the higher their eligibility for benefits.

    Explanation
    An insurance broker is not appointed by an insurer to transact insurance. Instead, a broker represents the insured and acts on behalf of the insured, not the insurer. The other options are true for an insurance broker.

      Fully insured

    • B.

      Disability insured

    • C.

    To qualify for social security retirement benefits, the worker must be "fully insured". This means that the worker has earned enough credits by paying social security taxes over a certain period of time. These credits are based on the worker's earnings and are used to determine eligibility for various social security benefits. Being fully insured ensures that the worker has met the minimum requirements to receive retirement benefits from the social security system.

    • C.

      Group term insurance

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The CLHIGA (Colorado Life and Health Insurance Guaranty Association) provides protection for policyholders in the event that their insurance company becomes insolvent. It covers various types of insurance policies, including individual annuities, group term insurance, and disability income. However, employer self-funded plans are not covered by CLHIGA. These plans are typically funded by the employer and are not considered traditional insurance policies, so they fall outside the scope of CLHIGA's coverage.

    • A.

      Direct group life insurance

      Group stop loss plans

    • D.

      Individual term life

    Correct Answer
    C. Group stop loss plans
    Explanation
    Group stop loss plans are not covered by the CLHIGA. CLHIGA stands for the Comprehensive Health Insurance Guaranty Association, which is an organization that provides protection to policyholders in the event that their insurance company becomes insolvent. CLHIGA covers various types of insurance, including direct group life insurance, individual (non group) health insurance, and individual term life insurance. However, group stop loss plans, which are typically used by self-insured employers to limit their liability for high-cost claims, are not included in the coverage provided by CLHIGA.

    • A.

      Premium cost is not taxable

    • B.

      Premium cost for insurance above $50,000 is taxable as income tot he insured

    Correct Answer
    B. Premium cost for insurance above $50,000 is taxable as income tot he insured
    Explanation
    In a group life policy with a death benefit of more than $50,000, the premium cost for insurance above $50,000 is taxable as income to the insured. This means that if the death benefit exceeds $50,000, the insured individual will have to pay taxes on the portion of the premium that covers the amount above $50,000. The premium cost for the insurance below $50,000, however, is not taxable.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    When a corporation ceases to exsit entirely, their insurance license:

    • A.

      Is suspended temporarily

    • B.

      Becomes inactive

    • C.

      Terminates unless the corporation files an application to continue to transact within 30 days

    • D.

      Terminates

    Correct Answer
    D. Terminates
    Explanation
    When a corporation ceases to exist entirely, their insurance license terminates. This means that the license is no longer valid and the corporation is no longer authorized to transact insurance business. There is no provision for temporary suspension or inactivity of the license in this scenario. The termination of the license is automatic unless the corporation files an application to continue transacting within 30 days, in which case it may be considered for reinstatement.

    If a insurer knowingly allows one of its agents to misled a member of public in order to induce the person to change thier existing insurance, the Commissioner may:

    • A.

      Suspend the insurer's certificate of authority for the class of business involved

    • B.

      Impose a $1,500 fine

    Correct Answer
    A. Suspend the insurer's certificate of authority for the class of business involved
    Explanation
    If an insurer knowingly allows one of its agents to mislead a member of the public in order to induce them to change their existing insurance, the Commissioner has the authority to suspend the insurer's certificate of authority for the class of business involved. This means that the insurer will no longer be able to conduct business in that particular class until the suspension is lifted. This is a severe consequence for the insurer's actions, as it directly impacts their ability to operate and offer insurance in that specific area.

      The page number

    • D.

      The statement that the benefits in the illustration are guaranteed

    Correct Answer
    D. The statement that the benefits in the illustration are guaranteed
    Explanation
    The statement that the benefits in the illustration are guaranteed is not required to be included in life insurance illustrations. The purpose of an illustration is to provide a visual representation of how the policy works, including the projected benefits and premiums. While it is important to provide accurate information, guaranteeing the benefits in the illustration may not be possible as it depends on various factors such as the performance of the underlying investments. Therefore, it is not necessary to include a statement regarding the guaranteed benefits in the illustration.

    Rate this question:

    • C.

      Send a summary status report to the policyowner annually

    • D.

      A,B, and C are correct

    Correct Answer
    C. Send a summary status report to the policyowner annually
    Explanation
    Insurers are required to send a summary status report to the policyowner annually if they indicate that an illustration will be used. This report provides the policyowner with updated information about the policy's performance and helps them make informed decisions about the policy. It ensures transparency and accountability on the part of the insurer, as they are obligated to keep the policyowner informed about the policy's status on a regular basis.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "any age". This means that if a dependent child covered by a group life plan is incapable of self-support, they can continue to be covered under the plan without any age limit. This allows for ongoing financial protection and support for the dependent child, regardless of their age, as long as they are incapable of self-support.

    • D.

      20

    Correct Answer
    C. 24
    Explanation
    In a group life plan, a dependent child attending an educational institution may be covered until age 24. This means that as long as the child is enrolled in an educational institution, such as a college or university, they can remain covered under the group life plan until they reach the age of 24. This allows the child to continue receiving the benefits and coverage provided by the plan while they are pursuing their education.

    • C.

      "Are you thinking about buying a new life insurance policy or annuity and discountinuing or changing an existing one? If you are, your decision could be a good one or a mistake. You will not know for sure unless you make a careful comparison of your existing benefits and the proposed benefits."

    Correct Answer
    A. "For your protection, California law requires the following to appear on this form: any person who knowingly presents false or fraudulent claim for the payment of a loss is guilty of a crime and may be subject to fines and confinement in state prison."
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the statement that includes the warning about presenting false or fraudulent claims. This statement is required by California law to protect against fraudulent activities and to inform individuals that such actions are illegal and may result in criminal charges, fines, and imprisonment. By including this statement on claim forms, insurers are fulfilling their legal obligation and ensuring that policyholders are aware of the consequences of making false or fraudulent claims.

This means that if the insured is injured while performing their job duties, they will be eligible to receive disability income benefits. This type of policy is important for individuals who work in high-risk occupations or industries where the chances of getting injured on the job are higher. It provides financial protection and support in case of work-related injuries or disabilities.

    Medicare Part A is the hospital insurance program provided by the U.S. government. It covers inpatient hospital stays, skilled nursing facility care, hospice care, and some home health care. The explanation for the correct answer, 65, is that Medicare Part A begins automatically at this age. This means that individuals who turn 65 are eligible for Medicare Part A without needing to apply for it. It is important to note that while Medicare Part A begins at 65, there may be other requirements and options for enrolling in other parts of Medicare, such as Part B and Part D.

This means that even after termination, ex-employees can continue to receive health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as before. This ensures that they have access to healthcare and are not left without coverage after leaving their job.

    • A.

      Through a system called "capitation"

    • B.

      By payment directly for each service

      A flat amount per subscriber on a monthly basis

    Correct Answer
    B. By payment directly for each service

When a physician is paid through a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO), they are typically reimbursed for each service they provide. This means that for every specific medical procedure or consultation, the physician will receive payment directly. This payment method is different from capitation, where the physician is paid a fixed amount per patient regardless of the services provided. It is also different from reimbursement, which involves the physician submitting a claim for payment after the service has been rendered.

In fact, one of the main responsibilities of MGAs is to collect and manage premium payments from the local agents they supervise.
