Commissions

Our commissions are the highest in the industry. Each company has different commission percentages for different types of insurance and in different areas. Your average commissions starting is 12% for new policies and renewals for property and casualty. Depending on the size of your book of business we may increase your commissions. Your commissions can range anywhere from 10-17% for property and casualty and 80-100% for the first year for life, health and benefits depending on the carrier and size of your book of business you have with us. You can boost your commissions if you roll your book of business over to us. You will still own your book of business with us.

You can continue to shop policies for each type of insurance to find the insured the best rate while making sure you receive the highest commission.

Commissions are paid on the 20th of each month the following month. Some companies may have a cutoff up to 7 days before the last day of the month. Those commissions will be paid the following month. For example if you write a policy on the 28th of this month, the commission will be paid in the following month from the upcoming month. Most will be paid on the following month you wrote the policy. 

Contingency and Bonus Requirements With Our Insurance Carriers

Agents earn a combination of commissions, contingencies, and bonuses. Understanding the math is easy with Reliable Insurance Managers.

CONTINGENCY COMMISSIONS REWARD PERFORMANCE

You’ll always make money on each premium you sign, even if you only sign a few each year. Carriers offer sizeable contingency commissions for agents who set and meet goals for production, retention, and profitability. These rewards are contingent on you meeting these goals. Each carrier is different. The contingency is earned after you meet your goals for the year.

BONUSES REWARD EXCELLENCE

Insurance carriers often award agents who go above and beyond with bonus income. Sometimes, carriers run special sales contests for agents to compete in. Other times, they’ll allow a loyal agent to charge them interest on any new business the agent brings in for them.

GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR APPOINTMENTS

Contingency and bonus income were initially offered only to the largest agencies, which had the staff and book of business large enough to hit production targets. But that’s changed in the last 25 years. When you join Reliable Insurance Managers you can compete for this extra income if you're able to meet the requirements. Contingency, bonuses, rewards and awards are typically given out at the end of the year. 

We Welcome MGA's, MGU's, FMO's, IMO's and Insurance Companies. 

We can set up all your agents with our carriers (If they don't already have a direct appointment), service their policies, set up their software, give them access to our training, manuals and scripts database. If you are interested in getting your agents set up with all our appointments and software, please call us for additional information at 713-227-7283 x 11 or email r.nickels@reliableins.net.
