SIAA gives you more income opportunities than other agency clusters, including top tier commissions, profit sharing or fixed-value-based commissions, regional bonuses, Portfolio Management Service Fees (PMSF) bonuses, and national profitability bonuses.
Captive agents have one big disadvantage: They are stuck with one carrier. When rates go up and clients can be lost, and there’s no shopping around for a different company with better rates. So, all you can do is watch your income plummet.
And, as an independent agent all on your own, it’s likely that many carriers won’t even give you the time of day. “We’re not accepting appointments,” is what you’re likely to hear, or they require you to write a certain amount of business before they’ll talk to you. As a small agency, that’s a tough thing to do.
When you join SIAA, You become instantly BIG, with access to over 30 of the top national and regional carriers for Personal Lines and Commercial Lines. This is just one of the great benefits SIAA offers to our independent member agents.
Among many others!
At SIAA, we believe that the independent agency system is the best way to serve the insurance needs of consumers. Our vision is to continue to grow and build the independent agency system by helping existing agencies thrive, not just survive, and by helping create new, successful independent agencies by providing them the ability to grow quickly and profitably while retaining their independence.
