Are you happy with your E&O Insurance?

E&O Insurance (Errors & Ommissions Insurance) varies from one broker to another, not only in just premium price, but in format.

Some brokerages charge their agents on an annual basis, others charge on a per-deal basis, and yet others may take a different approach.

How is your E&O Insurance billed?

Are you happy with your policy?

I wouldn't know anything about my e&o insurance if it crawled up and bit me on the ass.  In my 13 years in the business I've never seen my policy. But I continue to pay into it on an annual basis.  Otherwise, I can't practice.

Ralph: E&O covergae is required for licensure in our state. They're really cracking down on it. Policies are sold annually. I've never had to use it but it's pretty affordable at about $180yr.

Mine seems reasonable to me.  My broker charges per transaction.  My previous broker had the gaul to charge $1495 per year.  Like Morris, I have never seen the policy.

No, I really don't like the deductible which is decided by the company I work for.  We pay 1 time yearly on our office bills.  Mine is $365.

I've discovered that many large brokerages charge their agents an annual E&O Premium regardless of the number of transactions they do .... and if they leave that brokerage before the full year is up, they forfeit the balance paid for that year.

As an independent brokerage, I have negotiated a favorable premium with my State-Approved Insurance Company.
