(a) General rule. A Federal savings association must, to the extent practicable:
(1) Keep the area where the savings association conducts transactions involving insurance products or annuities physically segregated from areas where retail deposits are routinely accepted from the general public;
(2) Identify the areas where insurance product or annuity sales activities occur; and
(3) Clearly delineate and distinguish those areas from the areas where the savings association's retail deposit-taking activities occur.
(b) Referrals. Any person who accepts deposits from the public in an area where such transactions are routinely conducted in a Federal savings association may refer a consumer who seeks to purchase an insurance product or annuity to a qualified person who sells that product only if the person making the referral receives no more than a one-time, nominal fee of a fixed dollar amount for each referral that does not depend on whether the referral results in a transaction.
