1) This matter is before the Superintendent of Insurance, after notice and opportunity for hearing, pursuant to a Petition to REVOKE the nonresident insurance producer license of Catherine B. Jalbert, dated September 4, 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, and §1420-G.
FINDINGS OF FACT
3) Catherine B. Jalbert is licensed in Maine as a nonresident insurance producer. Her license number in Bureau records is PRN 79350. Her National Producer Registry Number is 5119591.
4) Ms. Jalbert’s last known address, as specified in Bureau of Insurance license records, is:
5) Ms. Jalbert’s resident producer license has been suspended since 2003 in Vermont and she was also the subject of a Vermont administrative order to cease and desist from all insurance activity, based upon an insurer report demonstrating lack of fitness or trustworthiness due to forgery. According to the National Insurance Producer Registry, her home state license remains inactive as of the date of this Order.
6) The Bureau provided notice by both U.S. regular and Certified Mail to Ms. Jalbert of the Petition to revoke, 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.
7) The mailed notices were returned as undeliverable, and the Bureau has no updated business address of record to which to redirect the mailing. According to the National Producer database and the Bureau’s license records, Ms. Jalbert maintains no active home state license nor company appointments; however, her Maine license remains in effect under 24-A M.R.S.A. §1416-A until revoked or otherwise terminated by the Superintendent.
8) Ms. Jalbert 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
SUSPENSION OR REVOCATION IN ANOTHER STATE
10) The suspension of Ms. Jalbert’s Vermont resident insurance producer license establishes statutory grounds for revoking her Maine nonresident insurance producer license under 24-A M.R.S.A. §1417 and §1420-K(1)(I).
INELIGIBILITY TO MAINTAIN NONRESIDENT LICENSE IN MAINE
12) Ms. Jalbert does not currently maintain an active home state license in good standing, and accordingly is ineligible to maintain a nonresident insurance producer license in Maine.
Therefore, the insurance producer license of Catherine B. Jalbert, # PRN 79350, is hereby REVOKED pursuant to 24-A M.R.S.A. §§1417, 1420-G and 1420-K.
The effective date of this Order is November 7, 2007.
