Bankers Insurance Group
PIA of Louisiana Member Benefit

In 2008, PIA of Louisiana contracted with Bankers Insurance Company to make available Bankers' products to PIA Members who ordinarily may not meet appointment eligibility requirements. Through this arrangement, PIA of Louisiana acts as a producer for the company, and members who are added to the PIA Program act as sub-producers of PIA.

Bankers appointments are available for flood only or all lines of business available in Louisiana (at-risk products). All PIA Members are eligible to receive a flood appointment, provided the agency is not excluded by carrier non-compete agreement stipulation. However, PIA Members may also seek an appointment with Bankers for at-risk products. Agencies may still be required to meet some specifications, and these all-lines appointments may be limited for or unavailable to agencies due to a variety of issues, including capacity issues or non-compete or reinsurer stipulations.

About Bankers Insurance Group

Bankers Insurance Group, a Florida-domiciled company, has been protecting home and business owners for over 30 years and through more than 25 catastrophes. From homeowners and federal flood insurance to innovative coverage for small businesses, Bankers offers a growing selection of products to fit the diverse needs of their customers. Bankers has been a long-time member, supporter and Partner of PIA of Louisiana. Bankers is the 2008 recipient of PIA's Associate Member of the Year Award.

Products Available:
  • Homeowners (Underwritten by Bankers Specialty Insurance Company, a Louisiana-domiciled company)

  • Flood (through the National Flood Insurance Program - NFIP)

  • Business Owners Policy

  • Excess Flood

What's in It for the Agency:

This arrangement affords PIA Members the opportunity to gain an appointment with this high-caliber company with which the member may ordinarily not meet appointment criteria. For example, agents on the PIA Program are not required to provide production commitments, making an appointment a possibility for small, main-street agencies, providing them a competitive edge. Further, once the agency has reached a specified level of production with Bankers, the agency is eligible to receive a direct contract with the company.

How an Agency Applies for Appointment:

Interested agencies should contact Natalie Cooper at the PIA office at (800) 349-3434 for additional information about availability and/or to begin the appointment process.

NOTE: Appointments and/or product eligibility may vary by agency and/or parish due a number of limitations, including capacity conditions, an ongoing non-compete agreement stipulations, or reinsurer requirements.
