What is the difference between an insurance broker, agent, and a consultant in Ames, Iowa?

Insurance brokers, agents, and consultants in Ames, Iowa all have a similar role as they help a business or individual select an insurance company and plan.

  • Brokers are often independent and are able to quote multiple insurance company's prices. They are usually paid through a commission from the insurance company selected.
  • Consultants are usually brokers as well, but they work with larger companies and are paid on a fee based arrangement, similar to general management consultants. That is why they are often called consultants.
You can use Mployer Advisor to find Ames, Iowa based insurance brokers and consultants.

Should I hire an independent Ames, Iowa insurance broker?

Will my insurance broker handle my insurance claims?
