About Market Access Program

How does the PIA Market Access Program compare to that of other aggregator models? We don’t.

PIA is a boutique program offering access to several admitted “A” or better rated companies.  Our program is designed to provide you with markets rounding out your current agency/company appointments - offering you choice and market share.

 

The PIA Market Access Program (MAP) provides PIA member agents with fast and easy access to preferred commercial lines from "A” rated (or better) admitted carriers offering competitive pricing and excellent commissions.  The MAP lets you research, quote, write, and manage your business (all online) while our experienced underwriting and customer service team provides you with responsive, quality service you need. There is no minimum written premium to qualify.

Professional Insurance Agents

  • Does Not Require Any Start-Up Fees
  • Does Not Contract Buy-Out Fees
  • Does Not Charge More For Additional Markets or Services
  • Does Not Hold You To Production Requirements

THE BIG DIFFERENCE

The PIA only facilitates. Once you have grown your book of business with any one of our many fine companies, we want to promote your agency with a direct appointment. There are no buy-out fees; you own your own your book and we never speak with your customers.

JUST A FEW MORE ITEMS

Commercial Lines - PLEASE READ! Commercial accounts $1,000 and under must be paid in full. A $25 administrative fee will be charged on all new policies under $1,000. This is not a policy fee. Agents (depending on state law) can pass this fee onto their customer as a policy fee. The minimum commercial liability limit we will quote for is $1 million.
