INDIVIDUAL UPDATES

Binder Payment Reminder

Make sure your clients made their binder payment to activate coverage and get your commission!

Many carriers have extended the deadline for clients to make their initial premium payment to January 31. Failure to make a binder payment may result in clients losing their coverage, and you will lose out on your commissions. Remind your clients to contact the carrier (or the exchange if they enrolled through the exchange), to make that payment.
