Mo. DOI Won’t Renew Producer’s License of Deadbeat Dad Who Owes More than $33,000

April 21, 2005

The Missouri Insurance Department has refused to renew the producer’s license of a man who owes more than $33,000 in court-ordered child support payments.

Thomas A. Varner of Kansas City was ordered in June 1995 to pay $2,000 a month for the support of four children, but had reportedly only paid $1,600 total by the end of 1998.

When Varner’s producer’s license expired on March 5, 2005, he applied for renewal two days later but was denied by the department, which said it requested additional information from Varner regarding the overdue balance but he reportedly failed to provide that information.

Missouri statutes allow the director of the Department of Insurance to refuse to renew a producer license should an applicant fail to comply with a court order imposing a child support obligation.

It’s unclear how Varner is supposed to pay child support now that his legal means of making a living in his home state has been revoked.
