Providing returns on your membership investment

FAIA Member Services (FMS) adds intrinsic value to FAIA membership by offering high-quality, cost-effective products and services, and access to markets. A subsidiary corporation of FAIA, FMS is governed by an agent-led board that monitors existing programs and seeks out new products and services for FAIA members.

The decision to offer a product to agents is based on many factors. For example, FAIA’s endorsement may simply add value in the form of improving the product to the public, thus making independent agents more competitive with direct writers or agency carriers that market directly. It can come in the form of improved compensation or more widespread availability of insurance products for agents. FAIA’s ability to aggregate can result in greater long-term stability, higher commissions, or better contracts on what are otherwise widely available products.

FMS rewards agents for participation in its programs through commission and potential extra income generated through its Utilization Bonus Program.
