Eagle Agency

What is Eagle Agency?

Eagle Agency provides Big "I" members with direct access to preferred personal lines and/or commercial lines in 49 states and the District of Columbia (not available in HI) with minimal volume commitment. The program strives to fit the member's personal lines needs by incubating until the member qualifies for a direct appointment. Eagle Agency company partners include:

  • Met Life Auto and Home
  • Safeco
  • Travelers

Eagle Agency offers Big I member agents choice. There are two ways to write business through Eagle Agency: Eagle Agent and Eagle Express.

Features of Eagle Agency: 

  • Agency maintains ownership of business
  • Direct access into the carrier's portal
  • Graduated commissions based on volume
  • Possible carrier appointment based on volume and profitability

Appointments are subject to review and approval by Eagle Agency and the carrier. Carriers might not be available in every state or may have territorial limitations. 

What Agents are Saying

Nancy, Kim and Jodie are exceptional people. It was a genuine pleasure to meet and do business with professionals who genuinely care about doing the right thing, not just their jobs.

The program is such an exciting find. It gives an agency like mine greater access to carriers with no delay. Eagle is going to open many more doors than what I have right now. 

I got access on Christmas Eve. Within a few weeks I sold eight policies that I wouldn't have received without Eagle. By month-end I expect to have 12 policies. I wish I'd joined right away, who knows how much I'd have sold?
