Our insurance agents have one partner focused on their success.

Insurance agencies are more often than not small businesses themselves. So, as much as we strive to meet the needs of our small business insurance policyholders, we’re also committed to the long-term success of EMPLOYERS’ insurance agents and their own businesses.

Our focused, disciplined approach to underwriting makes it easy for insurance agents to identify small businesses within our well-defined appetite of low to medium hazard industries, reducing the time spent chasing unqualified leads. And once your clients become EMPLOYERS insurance policyholders, our low minimum premiums; fast, fair and efficient claims handling services; and advanced online management tools mean they’re more likely to renew their EMPLOYERS workers’ compensation insurance policy.

Benefits of being an EMPLOYERS insurance agent:

  • Ease of doing business – our online submissions and quoting system streamlines policy binding so you can quickly move on to the next opportunity. This, combined with our focused underwriting, multi-state policies, and online account management, allows you to focus less on the process and more on your clients.
  • Competitive commissions – EMPLOYERS’ generous commission structure along with our ease of doing business gives you the potential to greatly increase your revenue.
  • Marketing support – our marketing programs generate small business leads for participating agents, while our online Agent Marketing Tool Box enables you to produce co-brandable marketing materials and educational information to support your sales efforts.
  • Stability and Dependability – from coast to coast, our financial strength and over100 years of experience means we will be here when you need us. Our dedication to long-term relationships with our appointed agents is underscored by the fact that we have never left a market.
  • Competitive Pricing - You gain a comparative advantage through our ‘provider of choice’ status with many professional associations; this allows you to offer both upfront and long-term cost savings to your clients. With EMPLOYERS’ flexible payment plans and low minimum premiums, you can offer your clients a cost-effective solution.
  • Loss Control Support - From our free loss control services, continuing education seminars, and online Loss Control ConnectionSM, EMPLOYERS provides the loss control resources you need to help your clients effectively manage risk.
  • Anti-Fraud Programs - Our investigations staff has many years of combined law enforcement and prosecutorial experience and has achieved tens of millions of dollars in fraudulent workers’ compensation insurance claim savings.

"As an insurance agent who's been in the business for 10 years, I've dealt with a lot of workers' compensation carriers. With EMPLOYERS, the experience offers a unique approach and philosophy. Their Claim and Fraud Investigations departments are serious about customer service, helping detect workers' compensation fraud and going above and beyond what their competitors are doing. It's quality service and people that give EMPLOYERS a great name – and this is the reason I choose them over other carriers when recommending coverage to my clients."
