How are insurance brokers in Rensselaer paid?

Most often business insurance brokers are paid through commissions and fees. Small and mid-size companies’ insurance brokers are typically paid through commissions. These are paid to the broker by the insurance company you select.

Should I hire an independent Rensselaer insurance broker?

Finding the best insurance for your business can feel intimidating, as there are a lot of options in Rensselaer. For most organizations, it’s beneficial to hire an independent broker.

An insurance broker local to the Rensselaer area will have familiarity to the Rensselaer healthcare systems and insurance plans. This gives Rensselaer insurance brokers unique insight that others from out of the area may not have. Also, independent insurance brokers are able to quote you prices for your employees from a wider range of insurance carriers and therefore can often find prices and plans that better fit unique needs.

Can I change my insurance broker?

If you are currently working with a broker, it’s important to know that you can always change your insurance broker. Even if you’re happy with your broker, it’s a good idea to evaluate Rensselaer-based insurance brokers often.

Will my insurance broker handle my insurance claims?

Insurance brokers in Rensselaer do not specifically handle claims, that is the role of your insurance carrier. Your insurance broker can help you navigate the claims process if needed, especially for large and or questionable claims.


Do all Rensselaer brokers have an M Score?

We work hard to ensure every M Score is accurate, helpful, and pushes the insurance brokerage industry to be open and transparent. It’s calculated using a brokerage's breadth and depth of experience across industries, employer sizes, and offerings. An industry-first, the M Score is available for most Rensselaer-based brokers and more are being added every day.


When is the best time to shop for a new insurance broker?

Making the right insurance choice saves money, helps retain the best employees, and can prevent unforeseen costs. An insurance broker is an invaluable asset so the best time to shop for a new Rensselaer-area insurance broker is earlier than you think. Extra time helps identify the skills and capabilities expected of your ideal broker, lets you understand how different brokers deliver different results, and gives you the ability to use neutral third-party tools like Mployer Advisor to evaluate broker options.
