Step 2: Get Contracted With Our Carriers

    1. Manager will submit your information to Contracting and you will be getting these emails:
      1. Your personalized link to our SuranceBay contracting portal
      2. An email with SuranceBay instructions
      3. A “Confirm Your Subscription” email to join our New Agent Training email series

    1. Make sure you watch the entire SuranceBay Overview Video and then get started.
    2. Create a New Profile with SuranceBay, and Request Appointments for all of the carriers, and confirm them until they say: BGA under “Currently At”.

      2. BGA: Good Job, you have done it correctly and your contract has been sent to our home office

      4. Discarded: Locate the reason, and email us for help
    3. Check SuranceBay daily for contracting updates with each carrier.

    1. Learn about AML HERE
    2. This can be completed before or after submitting contracting through LIMRA
  5. Follow up with each carrier in 5 business days after your contract status has changed to “Carrier” 
    1. Verify they have all your contracting paperwork and that there are no outstanding requirements. 
    2. Carrier contact info can be found HERE
    3. Keep an eye on your email box for important messages and appointment confirmation from the carriers.
