Licensing & Appointments (LNA) automates and standardizes the two-way flow of information needed to manage producer information between insurance carriers and distributors, eliminating paper and simplifying data exchange.

LNA provides a streamlined and cost-effective means for the insurance market to exchange producer data. In addition, it affords carriers, distributors and their training vendors the ability to share producer training completions information amongst each other. This feature helps manage NAIC Suitability in Annuities model regulation for producer training.
