1) This matter is before the Superintendent of Insurance, after notice and opportunity for hearing, pursuant to a Petition to TERMINATE the resident insurance producer license of Irene A. Marshall, dated December 13, 2007, and filed by the Staff of the Maine Bureau of Insurance.
2) The Maine Insurance Code regulates persons who offer or sell insurance products in the State of Maine. The Superintendent of Insurance has jurisdiction over this matter pursuant to the Insurance Code generally, Title 24-A Maine Revised Statutes Annotated, and in particular, 24-A M.R.S.A. §§211, 1417, 1420-K, §1484, prior Bureau of Insurance Rule Chapter 541, and Bureau of Insurance Rule Chapter 542.
FINDINGS OF FACT
3) Irene A. Marshall has been licensed in Maine as a resident insurance producer since 1999. Her license number in Bureau records is PRR 64436. Her National Producer Registry Number is 3687609.
4) Ms. Marshall’s last known address as specified in Bureau of Insurance license records is:
5) As a Maine resident producer licensee, Ms. Marshall is subject to the continuing education requirements of the Maine Insurance Code. Under the requirements in effect for the period relevant to this Order, Ms. Marshall was required to earn 30 continuing education approved credit hours by October 1, 2006.
6) In response to Ms. Marshall’s documented request for an extension for good cause shown, the Superintendent granted a one year extension, under which Ms. Marshall was required to earn the 30 credit hours by October 1, 2007.
7) Bureau licensing records do not reflect that Ms. Marshall has earned any of the required continuing education credits as of the date of this Order.
8) The Bureau provided notice by U.S. Mail to Ms. Marshall of the Petition to Terminate, and provided opportunity for hearing, directed to her business address of record, in accordance with the requirements of 24-A M.R.S.A. §213.
9) Ms. Marshall has not requested a hearing on this matter, and the time period allotted for the filing of any such request has expired.
CONCLUSIONS OF LAW
FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH
10) The continuing education subchapter of the Maine Insurance Code provides as follows, at 24-A M.R.S.A. §1484: “The license of any insurance producer or consultant who is out of compliance with this subchapter for at least 60 days, is subject to suspension or revocation pursuant to section 1420-K, subsection 1, paragraph B.”
11) Ms. Marshall’s failure to earn the 30 continuing education credit hours that were originally due October 1, 2006 and for which she received an extension until October 1, 2007 establishes statutory grounds for terminating her Maine nonresident insurance producer license under 24-A M.R.S.A. §1484 and §1420-K(1)(B).
