PIA is proud to announce a partnership with InsureZone, Inc., based in Fort Worth, Texas. Through PIA’s partnership with InsureZone, PIA members will be able to access over 50 national and specialty carriers plus real-time, online rating for personal and commercial lines.
PIA Market Access, available at www.PIAMarketAccess.com, is a wholesale market access program that will help agents access personal and commercial lines markets from a number of admitted “A” or better-rated companies. Agents submitting applications through the platform can receive quotes from most of these companies through a technologically advanced personal and commercial lines rater.
“PIA Market Access can help those agents who may have difficulty obtaining carrier appointments while initially growing their book of business gain access by utilizing InsureZone’s contracts,” said PIA National President Timothy Russell, CPCU, of Southport, Connecticut. “Not only will agents in this program retain ownership of their book of business, but if they should choose to leave, there are no exit fees. A win-win for agents everywhere.”
If agents already have their own carrier appointments but are seeking a comparative rater with the PIA Market Access “Best of Both Worlds” Program, agents can also augment their existing carrier contracts with the InsureZone contracts within the platform. Agents using their own contracts will receive 100 percent of the commission.
“PIA members have been asking for a market access program for some time and we are excited to be able to offer a program that will meet many of our members’ needs,” said PIA National Executive Vice President & CEO Mike Becker. “We are dedicated to helping agents grow their businesses. It’s exciting to think that going forward many PIA members will start writing business with the carriers on the PIA Market Access platform and eventually qualify to have their own contracts with those carriers.”
Through the PIA Market Access Program, PIA members will have access to over 50 national and specialty carriers. For a current list of carriers available in each state, please refer to the Carrier page at www.PIAMarketAccess.com.
PIA has negotiated an exclusive low monthly rate for the use of InsureZone technology and market access and agents can expect to see competitive commission rates. Agents who enroll in the PIA Market Access Program will receive the first two months free.
InsureZone is a full-service provider that is fully staffed with underwriters to answer agents’ questions and make the sales process as smooth as possible. The program provides insurance CSRs to make requested policy changes and the standard of service is to begin processing all requests the same business day.
PIA Market Access is available to PIA members in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Carrier availability varies by state.
PIA Market Access is a PIA member-only program.
