stay in school, while working towards your degree, go work for a local agent part time and gain some good experience; best way to see if insurance is for you.

There have been plenty of great comments. To recap on what most have said, making a quality income in insurance is completely dependant on one's ability to work and see as many people as they can. Insurance is a game of numbers. Those who have made it in the business have done so because they networked. Starting out in insurance is very difficult and I am a big believer that you have to give it at least a year or two before you truly know whether or not it is for you. I have heard people tell me that P&C agents make more money, and others say Life & Health agent's make more money. You will make what you believe you are worth if you take the steps to make sure that's true. I have a friend who started as a captive agent with me in the same company five years ago. We both made around $34-$40k our first year. We each split and started our own insurance businesses and he know makes around $300k a year, while I made 1.9 million in 2010. I'm not a better agent than he is, I just believe in what I do more. Do what you need to do and take the necessary steps to obtain names and you will do fine.

Well if you are talking specifically about insurance agents, then they definitely receive large sums of money. It is so because they are employed by the insurance company and so get paid by them only not like loss assessors who solely work for the insured and get a small percentage of the payment paid by insurance company to the insured as compensation of their claim.

most of you people talking about what you make are full of it... being an insurance agent is a tough job and it takes a long time to get up to the 100k a year range. probably at least 5 years

That is quite true. Some of them won't even be able to achieve it in 5 years unless they perform consistently.

Hi all,

I want to tell you that insurance agents also, make lots of money. It depends on what type of client they are having. Actually they get a good amount for a particular insurance which they call as commission.

I want to take on being an independent agent. I currently am a federal worker and due to the tight budget my job life looks to have about 2 years left. Is it possible to switch and start under an agent till i become independentand gain experience, and will it be a big pay cut doing so from 65k a year? Also, is it possible to u think to work part time to gain experience doing my current job then go full independent?
