Contingent (Profit) Commission
In order for us to maintain strong relationships with quality insurers, we work with each to provide the type of business they desire. The insurers with an asterisk (*) noted above recognize our efforts through a Contingent Commission contract. Payment of this Contingent Commission depends on a combination of growth, profitability (loss ratio), volume, retention and increased services that we provide on behalf of the Insurer. Contingent Commission is not guaranteed. For detailed information on Contingent Commission, please go to the individual company’s website.
Brokerage compensation is part of your insurance premium. Westland MyGroup is paid a commission or fee for our services to you. Fees are paid to Westland MyGroup by clients, in lieu of commission.
Should there be an increase in the commission schedule we receive from your insurer, or any other material change that affects compensation arrangements, we will notify you.
Your insurer will provide you with a Consumer Code of Rights and Responsibilities brochure which will be included with your new policy.
If you have any questions, please contact us.
