Just for Agents

Workers' compensation is good for Texas — and Texas Mutual is good for insurance agents.

Why sell workers' comp?

Workers' compensation is the only insurance that provides both medical and disability coverage for workers as well as legal protection for employers. Rather than patchwork together alternate coverage that can end up costing more and create gaps in protection, encourage your clients to carry workers' compensation. We offer eligible agents a competitive commission on each qualified policy written.

Dividends that lead to retention

Texas Mutual has distributed dividends to policyholders for 21 consecutive years, bringing the total payout to more than $2.8 billion. In 2019 alone, we distributed $330 million to businesses. Agents across Texas tell us that our dividend program helps them attract and retain customers. Through our individual, early qualifier and safety group dividends, your clients become policyholder owners and have the chance to reap the rewards of our success. 

On average, 75% of policyholders receive them. Dividends give us and our agents the chance to reinforce a focus on safety, and to reward businesses that keep losses low. Though dividends are based on performance and not guaranteed, Texas Mutual has distributed them every year since 1999.*

Competitive agent commissions and incentives

Texas Mutual offers eligible agents a competitive commission on each qualified policy written. All commission dollars are adjusted at final audit based on paid premium.**

We also reward qualifying Texas agents with an incentive for placing and retaining profitable policyholders with us. If you are accepted into our incentive program you may qualify for a profit-sharing bonus in addition to regular commission payments. To qualify, your agency must:

  • Write $300,000 or more of net written premiums in our Cornerstone and small business programs
  • Have a history of good loss experience and retention
