Want to create accounts for your firm? We have the ability to create a hierarchy if/when needed so certain team members only see their clients. -

MONTHLY INSURANCE TIP: BC Brokerage, how do we monitor or attach our client's insurance policies to our planning portals? If the client hasn't previously created an account, go to the insurance carrier's main website with the policy number and the client's SSN to create an online account. Once you create an online account directly with the carrier, you will be able to monitor and service the policy there as well. Depending on the carrier, you can update addresses, bank info, and much more! -

How else can we help you with your client's insurance in 2023? We are a no-cost service to our advisors. We are paid a commission when a policy is placed directly from the insurance carrier. What does this mean? Ask all the questions that you have. Knowledge is power, and we want you all to be as equipped as possible to help educate and implement your clients' insurance needs.

Our mailing address is: PO BOX 441032 Indianapolis, IN, 46244
