Show Me State officials are trying to get more information from a company that generates annuity leads.
The Missouri Department of Insurance has asked Investors Union L.L.C., Medina, Ohio, which does business as the Annuity Service Center, to show that it is complying with Missouri insurance laws.
Annuity Service Center has been sending older Missouri residents postcards indicating that annuity holders had to call a toll-free telephone number provided on the card, according to Missouri officials.
Annuity Service Center agents set up annuity review appointments with independent insurance agents for consumers who called, and the agents paid the center a fee for each appointment arranged, officials say.
Annuity Service Center can request a hearing.
