(1) No agent shall make any pre-need sales on behalf of a pre-need seller in this
state without first obtaining a license from the director. The director shall not issue such a license without requiring the proposed agent to
fill out an application form stating his or her name, address, and telephone number
and the pre-need seller for whom he or she will be making pre-need sales. The pre-need seller for whom the agent will be making pre-need sales shall also sign
the agent's application and agree to be responsible for supervising the agent in conjunction
with any pre-need sales. The fee for an agent's license shall be twenty dollars which shall accompany the application.
(2) The agent's license, when issued, shall allow the agent to make pre-need sales
only for the pre-need seller whose name appears on the license. If the agency relationship between the pre-need seller and the agent terminates for
any reason, the pre-need seller shall immediately notify the department of such termination.
Once such notification has been received, the acts of the agent shall no longer be
imputed to the pre-need seller and the agent's license shall be considered as void.
The agent, upon written request by the department, shall surrender to the department
the license within a period of ten days after the receipt of such written notice.
Failure on the part of the agent to surrender the license after written notification
shall be a Class IV misdemeanor.
(3) It shall be the responsibility of the licensed agent to notify the director of
any change of the agent's address.
