Hello Everybody


New Member

I am from Fremont,CA.

I am planning to take my classes for Life and Fire next month.

I have an agreement with Farmer's and it states that once I get my license I will be trained by them for a couple of months and then I will have to work on my own and get upto 40 policies,then I can go ahead and become an independent agent.

I am new to the Insurance industry, so is this a good enough deal or what should I do?

I am now employed full time as a Software Engineer. I am planning to work till I am confident enough to move out and be a full time agent.

Please let me know your thoughts.

This is the route I went, but I am unclear what you mean by " I can go ahead and become an independent agent."

You are not an independent agent, you are a captive agent with Farmers. Please email me your phone number and I would be more than happy to answer any questions you have.
Welcome Pari. It sounds like chatting with Jason might be helpful. There may be other Farmers agents on here that could lend a hand also. You may want to start a new thread and ask some questions.

Thanks for your reply.

I have sent a PM to Jason,so will talk to him soon.

I just wanted to make sure that I am on the right path.
