Learn How an Insurance Broker Can Earn Over $600,000 in Revenue After 5 Years

Posted on July 31st, 2018

Working with a General Agent (GA) is a great way for small group insurance brokers to increase their earnings potential. With fewer than 1 in 3 small employers (2-50 employees) in the U.S. offering health insurance to employees, the opportunity to sell small group health coverage has never been better. When you partner with the Flex General Agency, we help make this opportunity a reality…giving you significant earning power!
Here in Illinois alone, there are over 227,000 small employers. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation*, only 27% of these small employers offer health insurance to their employees. That means that there are more than 165,000 small business out there in need of coverage. Flex is here to help you capitalize on that opportunity!
We’ve put together an illustration to show the average earning potential for brokers working with Flex:
The average broker working with Flex sells five new groups per year, with an average group size of 15 employees. This equates to $40,287 per year in commissions.
Plus, small group commissions are residual, and you continue to earn commissions year-after-year. Assuming they continue to sell five new groups per year, the following illustration shows how much brokers can earn in five years:
Plus, since GAs are compensated directly from the insurance carrier in the form of an override, brokers get to keep every penny of their commissions. Even better, doing business with a GA creates operational efficiencies and helps to reduce overhead expenses—giving brokers more time to focus on sales. It’s truly a win-win situation!
