Speak out on carriers!

Speak out on carriers! Ever wish you could tell your carrier partners exactly how you feel? Insurance Business America is giving independent insurance agents and brokers an opportunity to send a clear, straightforward message to the industry with our reader survey on insurance carriers.

This short survey is your chance to send your thoughts and feedback to carriers across the country and to be a part of our upcoming “Producers on Carriers” feature in the September/October issue of Insurance Business America.

We are working hard to the most important attributes of insurance carriers—everything from range and pricing of products to commitment to the broker distribution channel. Your responses will be included as an integral part of that message, so don’t miss this chance to make your thoughts known and improve the industry for the better.

To thank you for your time, we’ll even be giving away an iPad Mini to one lucky survey respondent.

To see if you’re a winner and to learn what others have to say about the unique relationship between producers and their carrier partners, stay tuned for the next issue of Insurance Business America, coming to your desk in early September.

    It's not a carrier's responsibility to lower rates -- it is for them to offer competitive products at competitive rates. If you sell on price, you lose on price. Modify your technique to bring value to the transaction so the client does not focus simply on the price, but also on the value you bring to the table. When hiring an employee, you pay them based on what they offer. The applicant with a lower salary requirement on their resume does not necessarily get the job." The employer reviews the resume and determines which is the best fit for their company and recognizes that sometimes the best candidate will cost more money. Insurance is exactly the same thing. Focus on clients who understand this and bring value to the table by making them aware of areas where they may be self-insured and they don't even realize it (extended non-owned, low PIP limits, cyber liability, etc). You'll then separate yourself from the pack, have happier clients, and if/when that claim comes your behind will be covered.

    This will brighten your day. I recently received an invoice from CNA for long term care premium. New rates 60% increase. I can't believe any insurance dept would approve this. Now that we have no place to go because of age and health this is an example of extortion. Also no help from the insurance dept so far. You either pay or quit. Either way the company has you money.
