NIBA's weekly e-newsletter, Broker Buzz, is packed with the latest industry and product news, regulatory updates, forthcoming events and seminars.
In November 2020, icare developed a new standardised LOA template to ensure better protection for the privacy of employers and their workers. After consulting with the National Insurance Brokers Association (NIBA) and other industry stakeholders, icare has updated the LOA to better reflect the roles and responsibilities of brokers and employers.
This new LOA is to be used for all new appointments by broking clients from March 1st 2021.
