freyle, You don't say who you are captive to, but since you are in the southeast I assume that it would not be Farmers. I broke away from Farmers in Oregon in 1989. We were not truly "captive" but "encumbered" so I had a book of business that was 'outside' of Farmers to build on. I had a several of GA's and a mix of standard and non standard insurers I was appointed with. My first step was to obtain a couple of Preferred regional carrier appointments and then a couple of national Carriers. My first national Carrier was Maryland Casualty who subsequenlty withdrew from west of the Rockies. I'm still working with the two regional carriers that I initially appointed with.

I was a captive agent and left to go independent in August. I ended up joining SIAA. I would highly recommend them and I am not someone trying to sell you on something. i am just another insurance guy in your shoes, which is what I think you were asking for in the first place. They have been outstanding and have been able to get me appointed with all of the compnanies I was seeking plus a few others. I would warn you however, that it takes a much longer time to get all of your contracts in place and be able to write business than I expected. I signed on the dotted line with SIAA in November and I am still waiting on one more carrier to come through. Then it will take some time before I start seeing my first checks. What I did was sign up with a GA untill I was able to get all of my direct contracts through SIAA. I used Superior Access and would not recommend them. I have just switched to Agent Secure to get access to one or two companies that I wanted and was not able to get through SIAA. Hopefully they will be better. These online GA's only take a few days to get you up and running. I would highly recommend SIAA, but you will need to find something to keep you in business untill all of your contracts come in. I am in Texas and can put you in touch with Texas Agency Alliance. They are one of the local chapters of SIAA in Texas. They are responcible for everything west of DFW. Send me a private message if you would like contact info. Good Luck

My Brokerage is Business Only, but I can give you a sub-producer code, easy online rating, and access to Liberty, Amtrust, CNA, Chubb, Starr, Hiscox and Travelers with a 80/20 Commission split, you have ownership. Anything that doesn't fit I can write with Surplus and it's a 50/50 split. $150 set up fee, nothing more. Elizabeth Mains 207-817-0339

When the time comes that you break off independent, I'd love to discuss being an added resource for any work comp that you have trouble placing through your standard markets. We are a PEO "MGA" for those high risk hard to place work comp accounts. I can help with the troublesome ones so you can focus on retaining placing their other lines. Popular industries include Landscaping/ Tree Trimming, Trucking (long or short haul), Manufacturing, Construction, Roofing, Pressure Washing, Cannabis Industries, USL&H exposures. Please feel free to reach out to discuss further. Brett Arthur (813) 460-9166
