Earnings insurance agent mainly consists of commissions from the sale of insurance products. The amount of remuneration depends on the type of insurance varies from 10% to 25% of the contract sum. For example, the average price for a car insurance policy Hull, worth $ 20,000, is $ 1,500. That is, the agent who sold this type of insurance will receive a minimum of $ 150.
In life insurance, the commission also depends on the duration of the contract and can reach 30-50%. This is despite the fact that life insurance is one of the most expensive products. But to sell such insurance is much more complicated than the policies of popular types of life insurance.
In some companies, there are so-called system of financing agent. This means that, subject to the sales plan insurance agent in addition to the commission still receives a fixed rate - usually from $ 100 to $ 300. As an additional incentive and bonus programs are diverse, encouraging leaders of sales agents and so on.

Insurance agent can be a temporary part-time job and start a career in the insurance business. Development options may be several. Career growth depends on personal ambitions and abilities. An insurance agent can count on a place in the company. And when certain criteria can apply for a managerial position. For example, an insurance agent can count on a place in the sales department (as opposed to agents, staff "salespeople" generally work with corporate clients and conduct transactions in larger amounts).
According to the insurers, the position of the agent - is the ideal starting step for a career in the financial sector. Firstly, because the big companies, especially with foreign capital, like "grow" their own staff. Second, the experience "in the field" to help future managers to better understand market needs and to feel the situation. However, to get to the office staff, the expert will have at least six months to effectively work freelance.
By the way, not necessarily pursue a career all in the same company. A good specialist will be happy not only all the insurance companies, but also banks. After all, there also have departments whose work is connected with insurance.
