Should there be a change in the commission schedule we receive from your insurer, or any other material change that affects compensation arrangements, we will update this disclosure accordingly.

In order for us to maintain strong relationships with insurance companies, we work with each to provide the type of business they desire.  The Insurance companies with an asterisk (**) noted above recognize our efforts through a Contingent (Profit) Commission (CPC) contract.  Payment of the CPC may depend on a combination of growth, profitability / (loss ratio), volume, retention and increased services that we provide on behalf of the Insurance Company.  CPC is not guaranteed.  It is based on the average results over a three-year period and is not related to any one particular customer or group of customers.  For detailed information on Contingent Commission, please go to the individual company’s website.

Your insurer will be providing you with a Consumer Code of Rights and Responsibilities that will be forwarded with your policy.  If you have any questions regarding this or any other aspect of your insurance, please contact us.
