Revised Financial Needs Analysis Form
Effective July 1 — Required August 1
A new-and-improved Financial Needs Analysis (FNA) form ET-2506(06-19) is now available on AppBuilder and E-Apps. The new FNA form applies to all annuity sales.
The new simplified format is designed to minimize errors and processing delays. FNA questions are easier to answer than the old version, and the format better aligns with state suitability requirements. We think you'll like the new design!
Both the old ET-2506(01-14) and new ET-2506(06-19) versions will be accepted during the July 1 to July 31 transition period. The new version must accompany all annuity apps received on or after August 1.
• California & Massachusetts
State-specific forms apply, and both are available on AppBuilder and E-Apps.
The currently required forms – Annuity Suitability Questionnaire-Florida
(DFS-HI-1980) and Financial Needs Analysis – are now combined for a new Florida-
specific FNA form: Florida Suitability Questionnaire ET-2506FL(06-19).
For replacements, the currently required Disclosure & Comparison of Annuity
Contracts (DFS-HI-1981) is now replaced by Florida Disclosure & Comparison of
Annuity Contracts ET-4901FL(06-19).
• New Jersey & Washington
State-specific FNA forms no longer apply; use the generic version: ET-2506(06-19)
