2015 Pass Rates on Licensing Exams

The Coalition for Financial Security conducts an annual survey of state licensing exam outcomes.  The goal of the survey is to help understand where there may be roadblocks into the financial profession that impact consumers.  Consumer research continues to show that contact with a financial professional can be the difference between a family acquiring the knowledge and tools that lead to financial security and a family not securing their financial future. Given this research, it is critical that professionals from all walks of life and all communities be able to enter the profession without arbitrary and unnecessary barriers to entry.

The 2015 survey results are published in the table below.  The table reports first-time licensing exam pass rates for life insurance agents and health insurance agents.  (The 2014 survey can be found here.)
