Step 3 of 6 - Completing Contracting on SureLC

14.jpg

Now that we are plugged into HCMS, it is time to begin getting appointed with the carriers.

Contracting with the carriers is the most important aspect in ensuring we can get you into the field in a timely fashion. Appointing with the carriers takes 1-2 hours on our end, and takes approximately 5-10 business days to hear back. 

 

We want to make sure this is completed properly the first time around.

Please read this in its entirety prior to you clicking on the contracting link at the bottom of this page! Skipping any steps here will delay your ability to get out into the field. 

 

BEFORE YOU START YOU WILL NEED 

 

  • National Producer Number (NPN) - found on the NIPR website

  • E&O Insurance -  you can get this HERE. Select "Option B" when in the website

  • Voided Check - if your account does not have checks click here 

  • Contracting with SureLC must be done on a computer, NOT YOUR CELL PHONE

  • Watch this 3-minute tutorial to familiarize yourself with the SureLC System: SureLC Tutorial Video Here 

  • If you think at any point, there will be something that comes up in your background check or credit check you will need to write a letter of explanation. You will also need to include any copies of court documents if you have any charges on your record. You can upload these items to the system directly and add any explanations necessary. 

If you have any questions regarding your account with SuranceBay, please DO NOT call Surance Bay or FFL Corporate.... Reach out to me directly or send a screenshot of what you need assistance with!

STEP 6. CALL THE CARRIERS (NOT NOW)

 

Check SuranceBay 1-2 days after submitting contracts to be sure that on the “contracting requests” tab, your apps are NOT in BGA. Once your applications are in the carrier tab, you can consider your work on SuranceBay complete, now we need to follow up with the carriers. 

 

It is the agents responsibility to follow up with the carriers to ensure they are appointed with a writing number. Approximately 5-7 days after submitting the applications YOU will want to check the status of our applications. You can find the carrier information here

 

You will receive a “writing number” which signifies you are ready to sell their products!
