We received your completed Disclosure Statement which is required by New York Regulation 60. A copy is enclosed. However, we noticed that your company checked the box on the first page, which indicates that approximations were used since we failed to provide information in the prescribed time. Your Authorization was received in Customer Service on <insert date discl stmt>. Your client signed the completed New York Regulation 60 Disclosure Statement on <insert date discl stmt signed>, which was the same date the client signed the New York Regulation 60 Authorization. This indicates that your agent did not wait for our company to send the existing values to you. We have always provided policy information when requested well within the designated timeframe, which would have allowed sufficient time for you to respond appropriately. Please correct and return the revised Disclosure Statement. If you have any questions, I welcome your call to my direct line, 1-800-555-1234 Opt 3, Ext. X-XXXX.
