Do you ever find yourself thinking:
- “I feel overworked and underpaid.”
- “I can’t grow in my current position. I feel like I’ve hit a glass ceiling.”
- “I am never recognized or rewarded for my efforts and hard work.”
- “I wish I had more control over my salary.”
Don’t worry, we can’t read your mind…but we can definitely relate.
That’s why we offer you the opportunity to have complete control over your income as a Financial Representative – the harder you work, the more you make. Sounds nice, right? But the benefits don’t stop there. We believe in rewarding our financial representatives for working hard with corporate-wide recognition, first class travel and more.
We offer real incentives and rewards that outdo our competition. Here are just a few perks of being a Financial Representative at COUNTRY.
World-Class Travel and Events
Each year, our Financial Representatives and agency managers who excel are invited to participate in special incentive programs. Recent trips took top producers to New York City, Ireland, Hawaii and Rome.
Events include an annual sales convention and other regional activities where our financial representatives enjoy being recognized for their hard work.
New Financial Representatives receive a bonus upon completing the COUNTRY Agency Learning program.
A bonus will be paid to Financial Representatives when earning certain professional designation including the ChFC, CFP, CLU, CPCU, and CIC.
Generous Benefit Options
For new financial representatives, we provide comprehensive health and dental coverage with low-pay premiums. Additional benefits include group life insurance and long term disability insurance. Our long-term financial representatives can also receive retirement income based on sales productivity.
The compensation package we offer is unlike any other opportunity in the industry for three reasons:
1. We do not require a large investment up front.
Licensing and exam fees are the only initial out-of-pocket expenses and can range from $1,000 to $1,300 depending on your state of residence. This includes your property / casualty and life / health state insurance licenses as well as your Series 6 and 63 securities licenses.
2. We provide a competitive base salary.
The base salary is offered for the first three to five years of employment and increases (or decreases) each month based on your productivity.
3. We provide commissions on every line of business sold.
Up to the first five years of employment you will only receive first-time commissions, as renewal commissions are replaced by your base salary. After the first three to five years, the renewal income you’ve worked hard to build will be large enough to replace your salary and support the operations of your business.
Why this approach? We offer this level of compensation simply because we want to set you up for success.
