- discloses in writing to the customer that the producer will receive compensation from the insurer or third-party administrator for the placement of insurance, including the amount or type of compensation; and either
- obtains the customer’s signed acknowledgment that the disclosure was made to them;
- or certifies to the insurer that the disclosure was made to the customer.
