Kyle Egress

Certain states began requiring financial advisors to successfully complete a long-term care (LTC) continuing education (CE) course before selling LTC insurance products to retail customers. Egress allowed an individual to improperly complete an LTC CE exam for him in a state in which he had a prospect who was interested in an LTC product. The individual took the exam for Egress using identification information received from Egress, which included his social security number, insurance license number and expiration date, and address.

The prospect never purchased the insurance product through Egress.
