Great Plains NAIFA and Lamunyon partner to bring continuing education courses to local insurance agents. Wednesday, April 16, classes are 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Front Door Community Center in Great Bend with lunch provided to participants by Lamunyon Cleaning & Restoration. Space is limited so pre-registration is recommended.
Invited speaker is Ted Clark from the Kansas State Insurance department Director of the Fraud Division he speaking on Identity Theft. This is a one hour ethics course. Identity theft occurs when a person uses your personal information, such as Social Security number and date of birth, with the intent to commit fraud or to aid an unlawful activity. Once personal information is obtained, the person may open new credit card accounts in your name, open bank accounts in your name to write bad checks or take out a loan in your name. Federal law provides a $50 liability limit for the fraudulent use of credit cards. Because of this, most identity theft victims never incur a high amount of direct monetary losses. However, restoring credit and correcting the information is a slow and time-consuming process. Identity theft insurance is one way to help consumers cope.
A second ethics course and separate course on water damage restoration will be moderated by Chuck Geer from Lamunyon which provides two more continuing education hours in the morning. In the afternoon one hour of Life CE is provided by NAIFA on Final Expense Insurance
There is no cost for the classes for NAIFA members. Non NAIFA member cost is a 25 flat fee. To receive credit agents need to provide their National Producers Number (NPN) when registering that day. Contact Rhonda Knudson at 620-792-3643 to pre-register space is limited.
