To repeal section 375.1518, RSMo Supp. 1998, relating to life insurance policies, and to enact in
lieu thereof one new section relating to the same subject.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Section 375.1518, RSMo Supp. 1998, is repealed and one new section enacted in lieu
thereof, to be known as section 375.1518, to read as follows:
375.1518. 1. (1) If a basic illustration is used by an insurance producer or other authorized
representative of the insurer in the sale of a life insurance policy and the policy is applied for as
illustrated, a copy of that illustration, signed in accordance with sections 375.1500 to 375.1527,
shall be submitted to the insurer at the time of policy application. A copy also shall be provided
to the applicant.
(2) If the policy is issued other than as applied for, a revised basic illustration conforming to the
policy as issued shall be sent with the policy. The revised illustration shall conform to the
requirements of sections 375.1500 to [375.1527] 375.1530, shall be labeled "Revised Illustration" and shall be signed and dated by the applicant or policy owner and producer or other
authorized representative of the insurer no later than the time the policy is delivered. A copy
shall be provided to the insurer and the policy owner.
2. (1) If no illustration is used by an insurance producer or other authorized representative in the
sale of a life insurance policy or if the policy is applied for other than as illustrated, the producer
or representative shall certify to that effect in writing on a form provided by the insurer. On the
same form the applicant shall acknowledge that no illustration conforming to the policy applied
for was provided and shall further acknowledge an understanding that an illustration conforming
to the policy as issued will be provided no later than at the time of policy delivery. This form
shall be submitted to the insurer at the time of policy application.
(2) If the policy is issued, a basic illustration conforming to the policy as issued shall be sent
with the policy and signed no later than the time the policy is delivered. A copy shall be
provided to the insurer and the policy owner.
3. If the basic illustration or revised illustration is sent to the applicant or policy owner by mail
from the insurer, it shall include instructions for the applicant or policy owner to sign the
duplicate copy of the numeric summary page of the illustration for the policy issued and return
the signed copy to the insurer. The insurer's obligation pursuant to this subsection shall be
satisfied if it can demonstrate that it has made a diligent effort to secure a signed copy of the
numeric summary page. The requirement to make a diligent effort shall be deemed satisfied if the
insurer includes in the mailing a self-addressed postage prepaid envelope with instructions for the
return of the signed numeric summary page.
4. A copy of the basic illustration and a revised basic illustration, if any, signed as applicable,
along with any certification that either no illustration was used or that the policy was applied for
other than as illustrated, shall be retained by the insurer until three years after the policy is no
longer in force. A copy need not be retained if no policy is issued.
5. Any policy marketed with an illustration pursuant to sections 375.1500 to 375.1530 shall
not be required to have the policy summary required by section 376.706,
