In an industry in which many national carriers want to go around the independent insurance agent and sell directly, we believe that the independent agent provides the absolute best means of distributing insurance products and services.

Penn National Insurance’s policyholders look to their independent agents as their trusted insurance advisors, providing value-added advice and personalized guidance on their insurance needs.  Our policyholders have worked hard, and have invested their time and financial resources in building businesses or buying homes, and they want to protect those investments and assets. They realize that insurance is complicated, and while they may do research online, they know that there is no substitute for the experience, knowledge and personalized advice that Penn National Insurance agents deliver.

The tools you need

We provide the needed tools for our agents to do business with us with no muss, no fuss. Our online quoting applications have been built by agents for agents. We’re always soliciting our agents’ opinions and feedback so that we can provide them with the tools, products and services they need. 

Our agency partner

The ideal Penn National Insurance agent is our partner—one that consistently executes effective marketing, operational, automation and perpetuation plans, resulting in year-after-year profit, growth and efficiency.

We're looking for agencies with at least $5 million in premium who are committed to producing $400,000 in personal lines premium for us within four years, or $500,000 commercial lines premium for us within three years. Your agency should be in business for at least five years and, for commercial lines, specialize in small- to medium-size risks of low to moderate hazard. All potential appointments are subject to financial review. While we prefer appointing agents for both commercial lines and personal lines, monoline appointments are possible, particularly if your agency specializes in one over the other.
