There are two methods. The first is through your master agency’s AccessPlus placement facility, which allows members access to our top-rated carriers without a direct appointment. The second, is through direct company appointments, which your master agency will help secure. Note: Over 95% of all SIAA business is placed via members’ direct codes.
On your own, most carriers aren’t accepting new agents, and it is difficult to get an appointment. Or, you can get an appointment, but only if you write a certain volume of business, which can be difficult for a small agency.
SIAA has the size and membership to get you that access.
