Big ‘I’ Market Resources

In addition to FAIA Member Services' Independent Market Solutions, several options are available to FAIA members through the national Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America, Inc., specifically Eagle Agency, and Big "I" Markets.

Eagle Agency

Eagle Agency is an independent agency operated by the Big "I" that allows members access to personal automobile, personal umbrella and personal watercraft through both MetLife and Travelers; and personal and commercial automobile with Progressive. If you are new to the business or a newer agency, Eagle is an especially good fit for you. 

There are two ways to write business through Eagle Agency: as a sub-appointed Eagle Agent or through Eagle Express. In both cases, the agency maintains ownership of the business and commission paid is graduated based on volume.

There is a $100 membership fee for access to Eagle; additional fees may apply depending on access option chosen.
