Insurance agents serve as liaisons between customers and the insurance coverage they need. They are responsible for overseeing a portfolio of clients and reaching out to existing, potential, and new clients to attain crucial information that allows them to match each individual’s unique circumstances with suitable policy options. Agents’ successful sales rely on their ability to maintain accurate personal information; identify, differentiate, and negotiate various insurance plans; and remain current on policy and life changes. Insurance agents also assist clients in settling claims through their policies. Whether independently or on behalf of large insurance companies, they typically work full-time on commission-based salaries — a structure requires a high degree of autonomy in both day-to-day job responsibilities and income.
