2012: Out of the Gate and Gaining Momentum!!!!!

We are currently sending out our 1st Quarter Commission checks and would like to say “Thank You” to those agents using our RLI, Workers’ Compensation, Liquor Liability and Lawyer’s Professional Liability programs.
The business processed in this quarter was just shy of $3 Million in production.

Put Number One to work for you! Please visit the Number One Agency’s Markets Menu to learn how to take advantage of our available markets. Our website includes each program's submission process, marketing ideas, and Program Manager contact information.

E&O: They Say I Did What?

The Big “I” Professional Liability Program and Swiss Re Corporate Solutions recently surveyed defense attorneys used by the Swiss Re Agent’s E&O Program. We thought agents may want to see some of the feedback received from our “first line of defense” in protecting your agency’s interests.  See what defense attorneys say when asked “What are the common allegations made against insurance agents?”

As always, our E&O Team is available to answer any questions. You may contact Ellen Stoppel or Michelle St. Angelo via email at estoppel@massagent.com or mstangelo@massagent.com respectively or by phone at (800) 742-6363.

Workers’ Compensation: Vacation Markets

The Vacation Season is upon us and we want you to know that we have markets for annual and seasonal Motels, B&B’s and Hotels and look forward to your submissions!!! 
And keep sending in those coffee shops, landscapers, convenient stores, daycares, plumbers, electricians, auto repair and nail/beauty salons! Be sure to check us out before jumping into the WC Pool.
