This commission percentage is paid annually for both new policies and policy renewals. Should there be an increase in the commission schedule from your insurer, or any other material change that affects compensation arrangements, we will notify you.
Insurance Store Inc. also deals with over two dozen intermediaries providing access to different insurers through special programs and other agreements. Speak with your broker if you believe this situation may apply to you.
In order for us to maintain strong relationships with quality insurers, we work with each to provide the type of risks they seek. The Insurers with an asterisk * noted above recognize our efforts through a contingent (profit) commission contract. Payment of this contingent (profit) commission may depend on a combination of growth, profitability (loss ratio), volume, retention and increased services provided on behalf of the insurer. Contingent (profit) commission is not guaranteed. For detailed information on contingent commission, please go to the individual company’s website.
Your insurer will provide you with a Consumer Code of Rights and Responsibilities that will be forwarded to you with your policy. If you have any questions regarding this, or any other aspect of your insurance, please contact us at [email protected]
