Dear Ms. Morris:
As one of the youngest members of the Million Dollar Round Table in 1968 at the age of 22, I have seen first hand the abuses of overzealous salespeople in the sale of VA contracts. However, the new no-load VA products that have recently become available through companies like the "Jefferson National Monument Advisor" are very good for clients who want to do a 1035 exchange from contracts with high M & E expenses.
My desire to educate consumers to the cost advantages of these no-load contracts should not be negatively impacted by new regulations and disclosures that will increase my costs, which must be passed on to the consumer.
I would like to respectfully suggest that any regulations, disclosures, or educational requirements proposed would exclude true no-load VA contracts. I would be extremely disappointed to see consumers have to pay higher fees for us to educate them on alternatives in their choice of products.
