                      ANSWERS & RATIONALES


1. C Although life insurance proceeds are not subject to tax, the interest is. To find the tax
     free amount, divided $200,000 by 20 years, so $10,000 a year is tax free. Any amount
     received in excess of that amount is interest and is taxable as ordinary income.

2. B On annuity partial distributions, the first money out is the interest portion, which is this
     cased is $15,000, all of which is taxable as ordinary income. If the annuitant is under age
     59 , a 10% IRS premature distribution penalty could also apply.

3. A Proceeds payable to a Life Insurance beneficiary are never taxable.


4. C The Doctrine of Reasonable Expectations is closely associated with the Doctrine of
     Adhesion. Both doctrines state that any ambiguity in the policy (which is a contract) will
     be construed against the insurance company, since they wrote it. Tort law is also known
     as injury law.

5. C Insurance is regulated by state law. All states require that insurers have a prescribed
     amount of liquid assets (or legal reserves) on hand to honor their future liabilities to
     customers, such as Life Insurance death claims or cash surrenders. Insurers must file
     annual, audited financial statements to prove that they meet this requirement.

6. D Insurers may be domestic, foreign or alien, depending upon where they are incorporated
     (domiciled). An alien insurer is domiciled in a foreign country. A foreign insurer is
     domiciled in another state. A domestic insurer is domiciled in this state.

7. B Risk is defined as the chance of loss. An exposure is defined as a condition that could
     result in a loss. Risk classification is known as underwriting. Insurance is defined as the
     transfer of risk. Recognizing hazards and exposures and making plans to avoid them is
     known as risk management. Know your definitions!

8. C A peril is a cause of loss, such as death in Life Insurance, or accident or sickness in
     Health Insurance.

9. B Producers selling Variable Life need a state Life Insurance license and a federal
     Securities license. Although the cash value is not guaranteed, the minimum death benefit
     is, although the death benefit may increase above the minimum. Most insurers value the
     separate account on a quarterly basis.

10. D Most insurers offer a Children's Rider, which covers all of the insured's children up to a
      certain age for a flat fee, regardless of how many children there are or their health.
      Coverage usually ends at age 18 (or 21), at which time the child may convert their
      coverage to an individual Whole Life policy without evidence of insurability.
