What's In It For Your Agency
PIA Market Access affords PIA Members the opportunity to gain an appointment with high-caliber companies with which the member may not ordinarily meet appointment criteria. In some cases, the PIA Program affords the agent a higher commission than is available directly. Agents appointed through these PIA Market Programs may not be required to provide production commitments, making an appointment a possibility for main street agencies and providing a competitive edge. Further, once the agency has reached a specified premium volume, the agency may be eligible to receive a direct contract with some markets.
Please call Caroline Adams at the PIA of Louisiana office at 800.349.3434 to discuss the specific needs and eligibility of your agency.
Appointments and/or product eligibility may vary by agency and/or parish due to a number of limitations, including capacity conditions, any existing non-compete agreements, or reinsurer requirements. Appointment approval is at the sole discretion of the carrier.
