Personal Lines Products for Smaller Agencies

IIAT Advantage helps members agencies regain or grow their personal lines business through an innovative joint venture with top carriers. Several of these agencies have grown sufficiently to meet the program's profitability and other requirements, and have graduated to a direct, full-appointment with the carrier.

Standard Personal Lines Offered Through:

  • Travelers Property Casualty
  • The Hartford
  • Safeco Insurance
  • UPC
  • Cypress Texas Insurance

How the program works

  • IIAT has joined forces with Travelers Property Casualty, The Hartford, Safeco, UPC Insurance and Cypress Texas to help established small and primarily suburban IIAT member agencies unable to meet one or more company direct appointment requirements for standard personal lines products due to volume requirements or agency location.
  • IIAT identifies prospective agencies, screens for acceptable loss ratio, location and financial information for the companies and seeks an appointment with the appropriate company. 
  • IIAT staff provide training, help the agency staff learn company business processing procedures, review agency progress and provide ongoing support and communication.
