PIA Partners With InsureZone to Launch PIA Market Access Program
Register to learn more about PIA Market Access during a
free webinar on July 11 at 3:00 PM ET.
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 PIA members 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
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.
