About IIAT


IIAT’s mission is to help members succeed.

From professional development and governmental advocacy to competitive insurance markets and E&O, IIAT's people, products and services help independent agents succeed.

About IIAT and Trusted Choice® 

The Independent Insurance Agents of Texas (IIAT) is the nation’s largest state association of Trusted Choice® agencies. IIAT represents approximately 1,600 agencies and more than 15,000 agents and insurance professionals.

Trusted Choice® independent agents represent multiple insurance companies. Since they are not employees of any single insurance company, they are advocates for insurance consumers helping them comparison shop for cost-effective and customized coverage. IIAT is also affiliated with the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America and works with legislative, regulatory and judicial bodies in Texas on behalf of independent insurance agents across the state.
