Our story began in 1981. When an association was searching for a Medicare supplement policy and turned to David Morgan.  His research on this subject sparked an interest and he began building a company that addressed the supplemental insurance needs of retired teachers. United Teacher Associates (UTA) was founded in 1981 to meet this need. 


In 1984, UTA acquired the American Consumers Life Insurance Company, founded in 1958, and renamed it United Teacher Associates Insurance Company (UTAIC). This enabled UTA to sell and service its own policies through UTAIC. In 1996, benefit offerings were expanded to include home health care insurance, group long-term Care, Medicare supplement, first diagnosis cancer, single premium tax deferred annuity, and final expense life insurance. 


In 2001, David and Jerry Morgan founded Association Member Benefits Advisors to make benefits available for all other association clients in the United States. Since that time, AMBA has grown to make benefits available to 43 clients in 27 states representing 2.5 million members and potential members. Our goal is to provide the best-in-class benefits to all association members.

undefined“AMBA is unlike any other company I’ve ever worked for…”

Before joining AMBA, I spent almost a year convincing myself that the real estate market was going to turn around and that everything would be fine.  I’m glad I didn’t wait!  My first week in the field was a blast! I broke the record for most business written the first week and still hold the title!  The money was phenomenal but the awards, even better! I won cash, my first flat screen, and most importantly, the Mustang Grand Diamond Award.

Through my hard work, I am currently a district manager. The success and opportunities at AMBA are endless! AMBA is unlike any other company I’ve ever worked for and my success continues to grow.

“I knew I had found a winning combination that I had only dreamed about.”

After a very successful career in real estate, my life was changed by a deep recession in Texas in the 80’s that turned the real estate market in Texas upside down.  I found a marketing machine that came in the form of a niche market with exclusive endorsements and a success system of selling to their membership.  Add to that the fact that it was a recession proof market, I knew I had found a winning combination that I had only dreamed about. 

I advanced from a Benefits Representative in central Texas to District Manager and now a Regional Vice President.  AMBA’s rapid expansion into many other states has created a huge opportunity for advancement into management for those who can learn our success system and go to work every day with a passion for success.

"I love AMBA!"

Before joining I was on the road going to in-home appointments, driving as far as 300 hundred miles in a day.  Financially, I was living off savings which was quickly dwindling.  I was given an offer to join the Inside Sales team in April 2012.  At AMBA, I’m provided people to speak with and products to assist them!  The financial rewards here are left up to me and you get out what you put in!  This is a very blessed opportunity – with great people, great benefits, in a great environment!  I’m excited to be a part of AMBA!

"...AMBA was the right spot for me."

I had just moved to Austin when I joined the team and was looking for a job that would fit me better. I previously worked for a large insurance company as an inside sales property/casualty advisor.  I was ready for a greater opportunity for growth AND income. I was offered jobs with a few other companies but felt AMBA was the right spot for me. With less micromanaging but plenty of support, the transition has been amazing. In my first full month, I made more than TWO TIMES what I made monthly at my previous job. I plan on making more than enough money to reach my financial goals, and I will be sending myself back to Europe thanks to joining this team!

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Association Member Benefits Advisors (Austin, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend. I emailed my resume and was contacted the same day for an interview. The first interview they showed me a power point presentation about the job and gave me an assessment test. They asked if I was interested and I said yes so they invited me to a second interview. At the second Interview, I asked a few questions and they offered me the job.
