Should You Consider Getting A P&C License?

Should I Get A Property & Casualty License - P&C PreLicensing Online - Bateman Learning IncAlthough the life and health market has taken a “hit” in this economy and during these current times of political uncertainty, the property and casualty industry seems to have weathered the storm.  The online publication “Insurance Journal” has reported that P&C companies have actually been hiring while their counterparts – those exclusively marketing life and health products – have been downsizing.

In an article posted (entitled “Trends for 2012) Jan 9, 2012, The Insurance Journal has also noted the challenge P&C companies are having in attracting quality producers:

“Most agency owners will agree that it is very hard to find good, loyal, hard-working insurance producers. Producers that are available don’t produce. The ones that do produce are unaffordable or they want ownership in the agency.”

This “challenge” of finding quality producers at least indicates continued strength of the P&C market.  Many agencies have found that the ability to offer P&C has helped them to compensate for the soft life & health market.  As a result of this trend, more and more agents have decided to expand their portfolio of solutions and pursue a property and casualty license.  But, would this move be best for you?

On the negative side of the equation, many folks believe that the P&C business is more complicated.  That, however, is a purely subjective conclusion.  How you would answer this question really depends on the kind of person you are.  For example, Rocket Science may seem quite complex to the Cardiac Surgeon. On the other hand, there is a good chance the rocket scientist would flunk his first year of medical school.

Here is another consideration:  Though many similarities exist between “life & health” and “property & casualty”, there are striking contrasts as well… and we all know there is great value in focusing one’s efforts in “one thing”, and doing it well!

So, what about the advantages of adding Property & Casualty to your portfolio?  Consider these:

  • Level commissions.  This means that the commissions are the same percentage each year, at least for now.  Premiums usually increase each year, so you get a raise if you place the renewal.
  • Almost everyone needs some kind of P&C insurance - auto, boat, airplane, homeowners (insures house and contents of the house), renters (insures the contents of the apartment).  Additionally, business owners need general liability, products liability, professional liability, workers compensation, building insurance and commercial auto.  In other words, a much greater portfolio of products to offer and sell.
  • Ease of marketing.  Many insurance agents think that P&C insurance is easier to market.
  • Insurance problems and solutions seem to be more “clear” and may require less creativity.
  • Typically, the P&C premiums are much higher (working with business owners) than say auto and homeowners premiums.
  • In the P&C business, insurance coverage lines are expanding (like mold coverage was not around say 30 years ago).

Should you consider getting a P&C license?  Obviously, you are the only one who can answer that question.  In most states which require pre-licensing courses, we have them available online.  If you are interested in obtaining your P&C license in Florida, we have the right state approved course (2-20) for you at this link.  If you are considering a Property & Casualty license in another state, we would highly recommend our partner ExamFX.

And, if you have questions, please give me a call.  My direct line is 407-927-1191 (Jerry Bateman).  You can also email me, or Skype me (jerry.bateman4).  I look forward to speaking with you.

Happy Thanksgiving!! Washington’s First Thanksgiving Day Proclamation

The Bateman Learning/ MyCEonline Family would like to wish you and yours a Warm, Happy Thanksgiving.  We have so much to be thankful for!  Truly, God has richly blessed us.

Have you heard the story about the teacher who asked each student in her class what they had to be thankful for?  A little boy responded, “I’m thankful I’m not the turkey!”.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Minnesota is the top turkey-producing state in America, with a planned production total of 49 million in 2008. Just six states—Minnesota, North Carolina, Arkansas, Virginia, Missouri and Indiana—will probably produce two-thirds of the estimated 271 million birds that will be raised in the U.S. this year.

The National Turkey Federation estimated that 46 million turkeys—one fifth of the annual total of 235 million consumed in the United States in 2007—were eaten at Thanksgiving.

In a survey conducted by the National Turkey Federation, nearly 88 percent of Americans said they eat turkey at Thanksgiving. The average weight of turkeys purchased for Thanksgiving is 15 pounds, which means some 690 million pounds of turkey were consumed in the U.S. during Thanksgiving in 2007.

The Thanksgiving tradition, I have often heard, is unique to our American culture and history though other nations have since followed suit.  In spite of efforts to remove “God” from our culture (and from this holiday), this day stands as a special time in which our nation looks to the heavens and gives thanks for its bountiful blessings received (Lam. 3:22-23).  Even though the Thanksgiving holiday did not originate with the Bible, the principle of giving thanks did (Col . 3:15).

Was Thanksgiving established to thank each other (as some suggest today)? or to thank God Almighty.  I think George Washington answers this question in his first Thanksgiving Day proclamation:

“Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor, and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be. That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks, for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation, for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his providence, which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war, for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed, for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted, for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions, to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually, to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed, to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shown kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord. To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and Us, and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.” George Washington

May God richly bless you and yours in the years to come!

David and Jerry Bateman
