Insurance Jobs That Require an Insurance License

  1. Captive agents — Captive agents work exclusively for a single insurance carrier. They can only sell the products offered by that particular carrier and those they are licensed to sell. Captive agents earn lower commissions compared to independent agents because of their association with a single carrier.
    However, captive agents can still boost their compensation based on their production through bonuses. Similarly, these insurance jobs have the advantage of clerical and marketing support, and sales leads are provided by the company.
  2. Independent agents — Independent agents don’t work for a single insurance carrier. Instead, they represent multiple carriers and thus, have a more extensive range of products to sell. This arrangement gives them the freedom and flexibility to better meet their clients’ insurance needs at the best possible price. Since independent agents are not beholden to one carrier, they have the opportunity to earn more commission compared to captive agents.
