Have you ever thought of starting a career in the insurance industry? Becoming an insurance professional can be one of the most rewarding professions as you get to experience first-hand the satisfaction that comes from helping people protect themselves and their loved ones from unforeseen risks.
As a life insurance agent, you could enjoy financial security, job security, the possibility of owning your own business, room for growth, and a wide variety of job options. Even better, with competitive compensation levels and the option to set your own schedule and work from home, becoming an insurance agent offers a fantastic work-life balance. As you get started on your journey, you may be wondering, what are the benefits of working for Symmetry Financial Group?
At Symmetry, our agents are all independent contractors who can partner with over 30 insurance companies to provide clients with a completely customized life insurance solution tailored to their specific needs. Captive agents work directly for one insurance company and are limited to their parent company’s policies.
As an independent insurance agent, you have total control over your own schedule. By choosing when to set appointments with current and prospective clients, you can set aside time to be present for your family and have the freedom to achieve a sought-after work-life balance.
Additionally, our agents can work 100% remotely in the comfort of their own home. One of the biggest perks of having your office at home is that you will have more time to spend with your significant other and children, or to focus on hobbies and interests outside of work.
There is also an amazing potential to make well above the average income. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics the top ten percent of insurance agents in the United States earn more than $125,000 annually! While most starting agents won’t reach this in their first years, the insurance industry is a fantastic opportunity as there is no ceiling on potential earnings. With Symmetry, we will give you the tools to define your own success.
If you’re interested in owning your own business, you will be happy to hear that Symmetry has the industry’s only true opportunity for agency ownership! We have taken what works and made a system for people to build their own business in a proven way. You will have total ownership, meaning you can take full control of your business and build a legacy.
Our agents get to experience the Symmetry difference daily. As the only independent insurance marketing organization (IMO) in the nation, we can offer exclusive opportunities for our agents. Symmetry’s Choose Your Path model was designed to support agents as they work to achieve their career goals. Whether you want to build your own agency, focus on being a career producer, or your experience is a better fit for a wholesale model, Symmetry can offer a path to help you achieve the results you desire.
As an independent insurance agent, you are usually responsible for finding and obtaining your own health insurance, but with Symmetry, we are proud to offer all our agents exclusive deals on health insurance with the My Health Policy Program! With this program, you can obtain day-to-day coverage and/or catastrophic coverage at premiums that are half the cost of the marketplace. Additionally, you are eligible to apply for life insurance coverage through the My Life Policy Program, and Symmetry will cover your first year of premiums.
Our best-in-class bonus programs recently became even better! Symmetry's FastTrack Bonus + Carrier Kickers program rewards new writing agents like never before. New agents have an opportunity in their first 120 days to add $12,500 in bonuses to their income and secure an invitation to an exclusive Symmetry Destination Trip! We want to reward you for your hard work as you get started with us and help families get the protection they need.
An agent’s main goal is to help a client navigate all the nuances of life insurance and guide them through the process of buying a policy that meets their needs. While it is possible for a client to apply for life insurance entirely on their own, choosing the best and most affordable insurance policy can be tricky when you aren’t familiar with all the products and options available. Insurance agents are highly trained on all the available insurance products on the market and can help their clients find the most affordable policy.
Beyond helping clients shop and apply for coverage, insurance agents can help their clients find ways to lower their policy premiums and find additional benefits within their policy. If a client makes improvements to their health and lifestyle, the agent can help them get access to applicable benefits that certain carriers offer for healthy living, such as discounts and savings programs at partner stores and brands.
At Symmetry Financial Group, we maintain a people-first mentality that starts and ends with our agents. If you are thinking about becoming a Symmetry agent, you have already taken the first step towards finding a successful and fulfilling career. Our unparalleled benefits and connections within the insurance industry ensure that our agents have the resources they need to excel inside and outside of work.
