Obtain your State Insurance License.
Check with your state’s Department of Insurance (“DOI”) to determine their procedures and requirements. If you plan on selling insurance in multiple states, make sure to obtain their non-resident licenses in each desired state.
As a new agent, you’ll start by submitting your contracting paperwork electronically by clicking here. The insurance carriers will also require the following:
- Copy of your resident state insurance license and any non-resident licenses. If you are contracting as a business entity include your business licenses.
- Copy of your E&O insurance
- Copy of a voided check for direct deposit
- Copy of proof of anti-money laundering training (if you are selling life or financial products)
- Copy of written explanation for any background issues
We will scrub your documents for errors and inconsistencies then send your package to each of the carriers you’d like to represent.
Obtain an Appointment and a Writing Number.
Once your paperwork has been submitted to an insurance carrier, they will review your documents and perform a background check. This process usually takes 2 weeks. Once the carrier has approved your appointment they will contact you via email or traditional mail to provide you with your agent writing number and your next steps.
Certify to Sell.
With your writing number, you can now begin taking product certifications.
Most insurance carriers require agents to first take AHIP (American Health Insurances Plans) Training. Once you have completed AHIP and carrier specific certifications, you will now Ready-To-Sell.
* All agents must be contracted, licensed, appointed in the state they want to sell, and certified before they can sell our products.
