Federal law requires every life and annuity company selling certain products to have a comprehensive Anti-Money Laundering program.

They are also required to comply with OFAC  sanctions, restricting the business you can conduct with specific individuals, companies, and countries.

Compliance requires assessing risk, developing policies and procedures, training employees and monitoring transactions for possible money laundering or terrorist financing. Reports must be filed and records kept for five years.
